I observed secondary school, namely M 2/1, M2/2, and M3/1. I watch Mr. Tam didn't teach in grade 2 likes M 2/1 and m 2/2. So, Miss Bam, the student teacher of VRU, taught them. She taught the material of "used to". Firstly, she wrote the definition, purpose, formula of "used to", and then she explained it and dave the examples. So, the students listened to her and understood it. The last, students got exercise about "used to". And students did it by themselves in their notebook. After they finished it, she collected their notebooks, sand checked their answer in office. 
                After getting lunch, I did observation in grade 9, namely M 3/1. Mr. Tam taught in this class.  I looked at him that use a suitcase as instructional media. He asked students for opening it and guessed what things in it. after it opened, he showed the things and said the name of thing in English. The things were clothes, likes blouse, trousers, shorts, suit, long-sleeved clothes, short sleeved clothes, and jeans because he wanted to teach about clothes. After that, he showed vocabularies of clothes in a TV Plasma. Students knew about clothes in English. And then, He taught for making sentences from the vocabularies, for example "she wearing a blouse and a jeans". After students understood, He asked them for making sentences by own words in notebook. So, English learning was ended. And My time was up for this day, and I went back to my dormitory.
