The other facility is CCTV to monitor their children in the school. It makes the parent easily to know what their children do during the class or to know what is their children respond during the class.
3. Teaching system
This school used moving class. Therefore, one of two subjects are in the same class for the example is English Class. 4th grade until 6th grade use in 1st floor, so teacher can decorate and prepare many stuffs over there. Then, for 2nd grade and 3rd grade, there is class in 3rd floor or I can say the same floor with their original class. Then for 1st grade, the students learn in their own class for all of subject. Some teacher used their own worksheet to make the students more interesting about the material.
4. Materials and other learning sources
The subjects are English, Math, Science, Thai Language, History, Social, Sport, Computer, and life skill Class. Teachers do not use a book for practice but some of them also create their own worksheet. All of class has LED TV for showing PPT or video during teaching and learning process. Some of them make real learning by command the students to bring fish with the water.
The students have several books like the real book for learning, notebook for their own worksheet, and practice book. Therefore, they will easier to learn about that material.
5. Measurement and evaluation system
The evaluation of PSRU Demonstration School is used test, worksheet, and how the students act during teaching and learning process. The test is for final examination only, but worksheet is given every meeting. Therefore, students can learn from their home, because the students have exercise book and they leave the book in the school. The other hand, teacher also asses how student’s respond during the process teaching and learning.
PSRU Demonstration school used Basic Education Core Curriculum from the government but PSRU Demonstration School develops curriculum depends on the students need. Therefore, this school will have different things from the other school.
7. Teaching plan
For teaching plan, first we have discussion with the teacher about which the teaching plan we will used. Then, we used an AFS teaching plan format. Actually, the lesson plan is quite same with my own English teaching plan. It is not quite different; it is simple and easy to understand.
