post micro-teaching reflections

Well, first of all, I must say that I think this will be the smallest class that i would ever teach in my entire life. haha it's like smaller than some tuition classes i would think! nevertheless it was still a good experience for me as i learnt a lot from this 20 mins or so. thanks to all my classmates who made it interesting and to those in cahoots of drawing the picture on the board :p hehe, guess that made it even more memorable for me. think i would actually find it amusing if it did happen to me in a real life senario. but if the picture was offensive or there were obscenities in it, it will have to be dealt with differently. depending on the severity of the 'offence', how repentant the student is, whether the student has committed this act before etc are some factors that we can consider when dealing with this matter.

it's good to know our strengths so that we can then use these strengths to our advantage when we teach. hmm frankly i dont really know what to say for strengths. haha i guess this is where the loud un-demure (hm is there such a word) voice finally comes in handy...ahahaha


Hmm, i was thinking about some of the things that i could improve on. yup, can definitely improve on presentation skills, like not delivering instructions orally. i know that we have talked about it before, but i thought that it was just one extra instruction that i had to add ie. getting the class to think of ways on how they would improve the promotion of singapore. didnt think it could have been missed out since it was just one extra point, but guess now i see the importance of presenting things in print.

the length of time given for the students to look though the worksheet first was overlooked. i knew that i made a 'mistake' when the students ... erm my classmates rather were looking for their pens when the video had already started. this caused some of them to miss the first few blanks that they had to fill in.
while preparing for the lesson, i had a mental picture of what will go on in class..like when i would hand out the worksheets, what to do when i played the video (remembering to turn off the lights) etc. i took into account the time that i would need to play the video. i thought it would be wise to ask someone to help me distribute the worksheets while i started the video so that i would not waste any precious class time. It didnt cross my mind about giving the class a few minutes to look through the worksheet. hehe and i thought they would be ready when i started the video but guess i should have made sure that everyone was ready with a pen etc.

hmm about me being nervous and fidgeting, hee i wasnt nervous so maybe it was just me not being able to keep still. guess might have to look into that if it's distracting for students.

anyway ive been enjoying the micro-teaching so far. think it's really interesting to see the different teaching styles of my classmates and the discussion sessions after that will definitely come in handy. learnt so much in a fun way. hee and though im glad my turn is over, i really enjoyed my class on tues :) ohhh and now i fully comprehend the way that suhkairan felt during his micro-teaching about what pearl said. coz Emmanuel kept saying that the lesson was boring and i can imagine how it would feel like if the teacher took hours to plan for the lesson. i guess rapport with the class is of utmost importance... because hopefully they will listen even if the lesson is boring... of coz we hope that a boring lesson wouldnt happen. yah but at least maybe they'll 'give face' and not sleep or something. hee okie.. thats abt all for now.. thanks ibrahim and angel for observing and handling the video. haha quite excited to see the video actually..

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
