First Teaching Lessons at Cortland
After watching the video of how I taught the first day of class i thought it was really shocking. I have come to realize that I need work on a few things when I teach. I need to talk louder. I should not fidget with the ball when I am taking to the class. I need to be more sure with myself when I am teaching. I tried to teach way too much in a short time, so I need to do one thing at a time. I need to make sure that the class understands everything before they have a ball and that they pay attention to the lesson. I should have given a signal for attention so they know that they need to listen to me as a whole.
There are some things that I did in the lesson that were good. In the lesson I pointed out times when the students did something I wanted. I explained a way to change the way they were hitting the volley ball a more efficient way.
