Lab D: Falling for PE

Lab D Relevant Forms:

My Lesson: Lab D Video

There was an error uploading my video....

Reflecting on Lab D:
        Now that the final Lab for 255 is over I have begun to see my transition from nervous, beginner teaching candidate to more confident, self-assured, teaching candidate.  These 4 labs have really made me realize the amount of work that needs to be done to have a successful lesson.  I think that I feared the most going into Lab D was that I wasn't going to be able to demonstrate the Front Fall that effectively, but I surprised myself and I think I did a good job with my demonstration.  I think this lab went fairly well, especially compared to Lab C.  This time I really made sure the lesson had less talking and more activity in it.  You can compared my time coding from Labs B and Lab C. I really wanted to make sure I got as much activity in as possible because I didn't want to create a boring lesson.  I also think I did better in this lab than previous ones because I was hitting on the points for the C-9 Form.  I made sure I didn't forget silly things like my signal for attention or my visual aids.  The thing I regret is not touching on my wellness factor enough.  I had "Sweeteners" and I didn't know too much about the topic, and I didn't want to say something that was wrong so I tried to focus more on the Front Fall.  Doing these labs this semester has really helped me be more confident in what I'm teaching, even if I hadn't been exposed to the topic before this semester.  I'm beginning to understand the importance of intratask variation and congruent feedback, and I hope that what I learned in 255 will help me succeed in 355 and 356, and then onward to the future.
