The purpose of the present study is to evaluate activities in elementary school English teaching methodology classes. There were two parts of the activities. In the first activity, students watched a model elementary school English lesson and analyzed it with a partner using Google Jamboard. In the second activity, students tried to imitate the model lesson in a group, based on their previous analysis. They took turns playing the roles of the teacher, the ALT, and the student. A questionnaire was then administered after each class. The descriptive texts were then analyzed with the qualitative data analysis software, KH Coder. The results indicated that, on the premise of imitating a demo lesson, class analysis could lead to more detailed class observation. In addition, reenacting a demo lesson would enable students to experience smooth teaching. However, since the model lesson was an excellent demonstration, it was observed that such quality was difficult to reproduce completely.
