The World Cup's Coming Up Better Work On Passing!!!
I saw a lot of improvements on this lab from when I taught catching a football on the first day of classes. However, I did learn a great deal of things I need to improve after completeing my verbal transcript. One thing that I need to work on is speaking more clearly and saying words correctly. I noticed I used "gonna" instead of "going to" on my different part of my lesson. I need to work on this because by using slang words like "gonna," I do not sound very professional.
I do believe that I made some improvement on how I spent my time during my lesson. On my time coding I ended up with 53% of my lesson being activity time. I also had very little management time, which is great. However, I spent too much time with instructions. I really need to work on keeping my instructions shorter because I want to keep my students as active during class as I can.
Another exercise I did to assess my teaching lesson was a feedback analysis worksheet. This activity helped me to realize that I am not giving enough feedback. I only gave feedback to three different students during my lesson. Also, I need to give feedback to students that I do not know as well. I picked up on that I give feedback to the students of the class that I know the best.
