My Learning Experience

Personally, I think my learning experience presentation went well considering the time limit. I obviously did not look up any ideas before presenting therefore I can admit that I was pretty lost in terms of what to present originally. When I was in high school I always wished my teachers gave us a quick introduction or glimpse we were about to read before just telling us to read a chapter before the following class. Saying this, that is why I chose to give a quick introduction to The Great Gatsby and to show the trailer so there was a visual representation of both the story and the time period. In all honesty I know I could of picked any topic and do that instead but in terms of this presentation I thought it would be easier to discuss something that I was passionate about. I thought the trailer really captured the classes attention. Obviously there could be a change to the way I presented. I could of had more class participation and just called on people asking what they thought about the trailer. However, I was pressured for the time and I knew I was the last presentation and the class probably just wanted them all to end and to move on. Although, definitely in the future I will try to call on more classmates and have more class participation considering I will have to do that in the near future. Overall, I had a lot of fun doing these presentations and believe that everyone had something unique to bring to the table!

      Gina,

      I really enjoyed reading your reflection. You powerfully gave voice to some pretty common concerns for teachers, especially new ones:

      and

      I could of had more class participation and just called on people asking what they thought about the trailer. 

      As you continue to develop as a teacher candidate, you will find ways to make peace with these concerns. Being centered in what you are up to goes a long way.

      I am glad this was a good experience for you.
