Reflection on teaching lesson

1. I think the parts that went well in my lesson of teaching how to shoot a basketball was my ability and knowledge to teach what i already know and to help the class understand how to shoot a basketball with good results. Having a small group who listened very well made my job much easier as well. I saw good results from my classmates making me feel that my lesson went well.

2. I think the parts that i have to improve on in my teaching the skill to the class is my ability to not be so shy and use a deeper voice. I think that my shyness is the biggest part of my teaching that i need to improve on the most. I think i could of used some more detail in how to shoot the ball but again my shyness takes the ability away of my knowledge and i get nervous talking to kids my age. I also could of made the drill more of a game. It would have helped though if the hoops were down in the gym so i could walk around and see their technique.

3. The improvements i listed above are going to impact my students learning and motivation because if i show that i am more enthusiastic and use a deeper louder voice i will show my students that i know what i am talking about and care deeply and have a passion for what i am doing. If i can master that i think that i will have the ability to teach and have more fun. Also if the baskets were down i could have made the drill more fun for the students rather than them just throwing the ball up with no target to shoot at. If my students are having fun i think they will be much more motivated to want to participate and that all starts with my ability to express myself more and to be more creative..

First Class EDU 255

In our first class in EDU 255, everybody got into 2 groups and each individual taught a different skill to a certain sport. I taught the class for a segment of it how to shoot a basketball. I was not expecting that on the first day at all. It was pretty neat thought to experience what it would be like to be a physical education teacher teaching a skill of a sport. We were all recorded as well. It was a good productive first day of class
