Friday in 255, we worked with our TA's on trying to develop strategies and cues to help us teach lab B which is jump-roping. They were all very helpful when giving me feedback when I asked to watch me perform my skill. They were also helpful when trying to help me think of cues and practice ideas for the skill. The next thing we did was a jump-rope game that Sunnie showed us how to do. Its a little song followed by counting how many jumps in a row you can get after. We ended the day with an exercise called "shotgun." Professor Yang divided the class up into pairs and assigned each pair a different portion of a teaching assignment. Max and I were assigned to do the closing of the lesson. It was a fun activity and a good way to end class because it was very rapid fire and you had to be ready with what you are going to say to the class.

- My name is Justin Nassivera and I am currently in my Junior year at SUNY Cortland studying Physical Education. I'm a huge sports fan and love my Boston Celtics and Red Sox. Basketball, Baseball, and Golf are huge passions of mine and would love to coach them someday in the school setting. I have always loved teaching and coaching kids and have always wanted to become a PE teacher because it was always my favorite class in school. Many people have strong opinions against physical education and I believe that myself and other physical educators need to spread the word of what exactly we are doing in the PE world.
