Friday I taught Tchoukball as my lesson. I was teaching the 12th grade so i wanted to make sure my activities were appropriate for them. I thought that i had a few positives and negatives but I'll start with the positives. I thought my instant activity got them moving around pretty quickly without much delay. I liked how I used two different stations because it gave a little variety to the students so they aren't just all doing the same thing.
My TA Sunnie told me that I did a good job with my feedback towards the
students because I used almost all of their names and I was specific as to what I was saying to them. At the end I thought by bringing in the German language, it would be a good way to teach some of the culture.
On the negative side, I really didn't have any specific cues for the kids to relate to. I also think that there was a few times where I should have asked the students understood everything I was talking about. It is important to check for understanding because not all of the students will completely know what I want them to do. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's lab C's and for preparing for lab D. Considering it's the last lab we do, I really want to make it a perfect lesson to end the semester strong.

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.
