English classes observations are really important for several reasons but I am going to narrow down those reasons to three:
- Sometimes we are incapable of having a look at the mistakes we commonly make.
- Observations help potential and new teachers to think critically about the teaching done by others.

English Class Observation Checklist
These are some ideas to
- What framework was used to teach the class?
- Did the lesson have an objective?
- What rules were enforced?
- What method the teacher used to enforce rules?
- What rules weren’t enforced?
- Did the teacher have classroom management issues? (class being too loud, students leaving the room without permission)
- What did you learn about enforcing rules in the classroom?
- How many students are there in the classroom?
- Was the class too large? If so, how did the teacher handle that?
Classroom Lay Out
- What classroom lay-out was used by the teacher?
- How did the classroom lay-out impact the teaching of the class?
- How would you describe the teaching style of the teacher?
- Based on what you were able to see, How would you describe the rapport during the lesson?
