5.Demonstration and Criticism Lessons

Prior to Practice Teaching  during the BEd course, trainees observe  ‘Demonstration Classes’ by experienced  teachers  and also  engage a 40 minute session  with  students from a secondary school as part of ‘Criticism Lessons’.

In IASE, Thrissur, the  trainees get an opportunity to observe the classes of not only their teacher educator but also of  classes by  trainees of previous years who studied in the Institute.

Following the  session by the trainee who engages the Criticism Lesson, the  peers and the teacher educator who observes the class offers constructive criticism to help the trainee  improve own performance.

Owing to  the paucity of student strength in the Demonstration school, Govt. Model HS, Thrissur, the teacher-in-charge of  Practice Teaching, Ms. Anitha K.D. arranged classes  for  Criticism Lessons  bringing students from the neighboring school, Sacred Heart Convent.
