lab c- juggling

Today's lesson went pretty well I thought. Juggling isn't something that you can have a lot of activities come out of it. I wish I had more scarves to start the class out with so I could've moved the more advanced jugglers to the yarn balls. My lesson was based off the most basic juggling skills so I felt that some of the class was losing interest but I didn't want to cover some of the stuff I know the other people that were teaching juggling were going to do. I felt that teaching the day after spring break was also a challenge. I was away all break and it was hard to get back into the teaching mode, I know I'm going to have to do that when I become a teacher. Having 12 minutes to teach was much easier to do then the four minutes we had in the beginning of the semester. I am feeling more comfortable being in front of the class and in front of the video camera. There is still more I need to work on but each time I teach is another day of practice, and practice makes perfect.

Feed back and time coding for jump rope

Feedback analysis

Time Coding

I paste the links but they aren't showing up. I get this message saying that there is a scripted web page. It lets me post the links but they aren't showing up so I'm going to have to ask in class about it.

Jump Rope Unit

When I do the transcript I realize I say things very weird and unclear sometimes. I know that I haven't been teaching in front of a camera long and I know I get nervous everytime so that is part of the reason I think. Before I get on camera all day I am thinking about how I want to go about my lesson, but it seems that as soon as I get in front of the class I lose everything I wanted to say or it all comes out differently than I planned! Hopefully I can change that the more I teach. I swear I know exactly what I want to do and how I want to say everything but then I open my mouth and everything is much different. Also through the transcript I realize that I say "guys" way too much. This time teaching I didn't give hardly any feedback. I think it was because I was really distracted with Gio speaking Italian to me, I felt very overwhelmed by that. I was happy that Dr. Yang through a curveball at me beacuse I haven't had to deal with a bad kid or anything in class yet so I wanted to see how I would react to something like that. I talked to Dr. Yang after class and asked him how to deal with a student that doesn't speak Italian I now feel better about having to deal with it. I do think I did a pretty good job with the student but I kind of ignored the rest of the class.
