Lab A revisted: Instruction Junction

This week in 255 we had the chance to try lab A again. This time around you could prepare to an extent of what you wanted to do and how you wanted to do it. Having the ability to watch yourself teach you can pick up on what you did well and what you need to work on.

Before we get into what i think you can watch the video for yourself below.

Now that you have seen my second attempt let me delve into what i take form it. Firstly what i did correct. I believe i spoke clear and loud so everyone could here me and never put my back to the students. I checked for understanding, demonstrated and spoke with my hands as well to further get my point across. I also did not cover to much information or say alright a million times like last time. lastly i never say uhm.

However there were some things i was disappointed in. For one there was not enough activity time only 40 percent of the time and that was largely due to my excessive instruction time which took 50 percent of my time.That is far to much in a physical education setting and is going to be my next thing to work on. I'm sure there are other things that i hope my peers can help me see so i can improve even further.

On the other hand i had fun participating in my fellow classmates lessons.

All in all another great chance i had to improve my teaching skills.

Here are links to my Time coding sheet and  Transcript.
