I observed a grade 1 class today from 8:15 to 9:00 am. How I wish I could share the transcripts with you. Of course, I can’t as part of the agreement with the principal and the participant. But here’s what I can share: the teacher’s really good, from the community singing to the end of the lesson. In fact, I was impressed. The smooth flow of the lesson was observed. Plus, the approach was communicative. I can’t analyze the texts yet because I need more data. A 50-minute recording takes about eight hours of transcription. No wonder, researchers hate transcribing.
