Mini-Skill Lesson Part Two Reflection
I felt much better and way more prepared for the second round of lab one. Unlike the first day of class we knew that we were going to have to teach that day which gave everyone a heads up and time to prepare. I decided to teach the forearm pass. It was much easier to figure out how to go about giving the lesson since we had some time in class to learn the different parts of a lesson. It helped a lot with managing my time and how and when to give cues and demonstrations. The lesson felt a lot more organized to me and I had more structure then my first teaching experience. I gave instruction and then a demonstration, and then had them get partners and gave them a "challenge". First I had them throw the ball to their partner who would pass it back, and then when they were done with that they could go on to passing it back and forth. I also gave the more advanced students a way to keep them interested. I told them they could move farther apart if they had control close together. That way they don't get bored of the activity and start misbehaving. I have provided a time coding document so you can see how my lesson is divided up between activity time, management time, and so forth. There is also a form and a transcript so you can see who I gave feedback to and exactly what I said throughout the lesson.
