I liked the group work. I think that I would've tried to do more to build knowlege with the students rather than just doing so much talking and having the students repeat. The students seem to be good at repeating the teacher's answers and doing exactly what she says but it's unclear how able they really are to work / think independently and how much they really understand. I think that I also would've done a lot more to activate the students' background knowledge.

I think the teacher great job mananing the students.  The teacher cuts aloe vera and has the students analyze the plant.  They are to determine the color, shape, and smell of the plant? The students are working in groups of four to read and answer questions in a handout. She does a great job assigning roles and the students following along.

I think that the teacher was very clear and was good at reminiding the students of the rules and managing the classsroom but also I found that I was slightly questioning her ability to keep the students interested and that was what was causing the students to not be fully listening and engaged. Which I think that may have been causing some of the management issues. Many of the students body langauge showed that they were not readily engaged, to be a little blunt they looked a little bored. Once she started to roam around during their group work, I did appreciate the thought-provoking questions that she was asking.

I think the teacher does a great job in maintaining all the students in her class to the activity that they are assigned. At the same time, It is nice to see that she uses a shaking hand gestures with her students to know that they have her attention, and reminding them that they should raise their hand in order have permission to speak.  the most clever technqiue that she uses is making sure that each student in the group has an established role because it helps showcase that everyone is actively participating.
