1. Reflect upon your lab teaching experience. Describe your teaching strengths and weaknesses for teaching in this lab.
2. Identify one of your most effective teachers. What teaching behaviors did you admire most in the way he/she taught?
Having the opportunity to observe an effective teacher, Miss Flynn had some great qualities and made the lesson fun. She had a great anticipatory set using characteristics of animals to relate the skill of balance. The activities were amusing and focused on different ways of dynamic and static balancing. Her motivational attitude kept me interested and looking forward to the next task.
3. What goals will you set for yourself as you prepare to teach in the Education 300 Field Experience?
As I continue my field experience I believe I need to create goals to make me a more effective teacher. These goals would include researching information with more depth when creating my lesson plans and practicing the presentation that is to be expressed to students of my class. Also I believe I need to set a goal to focus on the students learning and not stay stuck on thinking what it is that I have done wrong during a lesson.
