Self Assessment

It is a good idea sometimes to think about how effective you are at learning- both in English and in other subjects. Consider the five key questions below. If you answer yes to any of them, think about how you can solve  the problem. Sometimes, you can think up the answer yourself. If not  you can’t, why not discuss the problem with a friend, or with your teacher? Answer yes and no.

  1. Do you find it difficult to concentrate when you are studying?
  2. Do you feel that you forget what you have learnt  very quickly?
  3. Do you sometimes feel nervous about reading aloud or speaking in class?
  4. Do you find it hard to work outside class, or to do your homework?
  5. Are you reluctant to ask for help when you need it?

From now on, we will ask you to assess yourself on how well you are learning  at the end of each term. Try to be honest when you think about the problems you  have- and to be positive about possible  solution. If you have any problems, ask your teacher.

He is always standing there

At the corner of the square.

And his silver buttons shine

He walks along with a heavy tread

Left, right,  left, right

Swings his arms, hold up his head

Left, right, left, right

Once i wasn’t  very good

Not far from where he stood.

He didn’t say a word

But i’m sure he must have heard
