Lab C

I think in this lab some of things that I need to work on is explaining the task and being louder. Overall I think everyone is doing really good with the assignment and coming up with great ideas.

Frisbee Lesson

In this teaching assignment I taught the cues on how to properly throw a backhand throw with a frisbee. I realized that the one thing that I need to work on is projecting my voice. I also noticed that my poster needed to be bigger so that people can see my pictures and cues from far away. I think that working up the time we teach is good because it helps us feel more comfortable each time we teach.

Time Coding

First Time Coding Assignment
The time coding assignment was interesting to see how things were layed out in our mini lessons. It shows how much time that we use when we should be having more activity. Students want to be active so we should keep our demonstrations short so that we can keep students moving. I think this assignment helped demonstrate that.

Both positive and negative feedback are important when teaching your class. Students need to know if they are doing the skills correctly and feedback helps them. It also lifts their confidence because when you say something to them they know your watching. This also can help misbehavior because if students know that your watching then they are more likely to not go off and do something their not supposed to. You want to be sure to add both kinds of feedback. You want to address the entire class and also individually. This way kids know that the comment is directed just to them. I think feedback is important to set a good environment in a classroom.

I realized when I wrote down everything that I said that I need to work on explaining how to do the skill better. I didn't really mention any important cues that the students needed to work on. I also didn't give any feedback to the students as they were doing the skill. I also need to be louder because I couldn't hear everything that I said. I think this is a good way to look at how you teach so you can work on your weaknesses. I feel that from that lesson to now I know alot more of what actually goes into explaining a skill and a lesson.
