tyler - Spring 2011 - Lab C Quidditch

Lab c was our international lab. It was given to us to reach out into other cultures and see what kinds of sports they play, or what activities they are involved in physically. I was able to teach quidditch which is a sport played by harry potter and his classmates at hogwarts wizard school, in the land of make believe. But moving on to my performance this was our longest teaching period so far, and it still goes by really fast. After doing the Time Coding Form again i was un happy with how much time i wasted on management. I need to focus more on getting the students straight to activity. Like in Lab B2 management took up to much time. Although i still kept down the waiting, and instruction categories. And my activity time was decent and really close to getting those points. According to my Feedback Form i think i got to over half of my class. I would like to get a little louder on my feedbacks instead of a individual feedback tone. I thought i hit a lot more congruent feedbacks then in my last lab. Again I felt more confident then the last lab, and i can see improvement every time i teach, and i think that is exactly what we are looking for. Some things i missed was a safety statement, i had some technology problems which i learned from. I didnt pinpoint in my lesson or show the best demonstrations. All in all i thought i did good, and im starting to prepare for my final lab D, and i am hoping i can put everything together.

Tyler - Spring 2011 - Lab B2

Another Lab down and the improvements keep on coming! I noticed i had more confidence when i went to teach my lesson this time around. I think it should keep getting easier to get all my thoughts and ideas out to the students, in a clear and quick manner. I still think i should have practiced my skills some more. The can can was kind of hard and i dont think i did a good job of explaining the cues. I also didnt show a full speed demonstration. It was just something i forgot to do. After doing the TimeCoding Form i noticed i had way to much time in Management. Instead of having the class come in and out for instruction i should try to do it from where the students are. Next according to my Feedback Form i think i still need to give more feedback. I gave a lot of congruent feedback which was a improvement.
