Teaching Reflection

After yesterday's lesson that I presented, I feel like I could've done a better job. I was satisfied with the fact that I thought the class was engaged in my topic and in what I was saying, but I was disappointed in the lack of detail I was able to get into. Also, I found myself become nervous to present the short powerpoint, which is odd because I am less nervous to sing in a room full of 200 people. Interestingly enough, most of the class responded positively to my presentation because most of the feedback I got was ++. The area I found needing more improvement was motivation. I suppose that's so because teaching someone how to not have stage fright is something I believe can be taught over time and not just in one lesson. Giving feedback to others at first was hard because I don't like giving criticism to people I am not extremely close to and I also don't want to hurt anyones feelings. To make the feedback more meaningful, I'd like to go into detail about why I gave them the ++, +,+-,-, or --, because I believe that anyone could look at feedback, but to understand why one receives the feedback they do, is when one will learn from their errors.

      Olivia,

      This was very interesting to me:

      It will be interesting to see if as we continue to do this, if your sense of what happened matches the feedback you receive.
