Today I taught my Lab D assignment. I taught table tennis and I thought it went okay. I didn't do everything that I'd planned, but that will happen when I'm out in the world teaching. My instant activity was based around my teaching topic HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup). I thought it was good because it made the students think about making healthy choices before they eat food. I was dissapointed because I couldn't get my technology to work in the racquetball courts because there was no internet connection. I used Forrest Gump as my hook and the students liked it. I was able to get them playing doubles in a different room. I thought playing doubles would be a good idea because it would allow them to interact with each other more often instead of one partner the entire lesson. I also tried using a separate room and go back and forth but after a minute or so I decided that it would just be easier on myself to keep them all in one room.
My behavior issue was Trish and Emily. They were trying to flirt with me. I told them that it was inappropriate behavior and that they should not do it anymore. After that they stopped. Overall I thought I did good but I probably should've been a little bit louder. It was very tough and crowded to teach in the racquetball courts but I enjoyed the challenge. As I watched my video I saw that I was a little bit nervous at the start. It wasn't so much that I was nervous to be in front of everyone, but I wanted to make sure that I did well on my last lab of the year.
