In order to improve my use of key words as teaching cues during independent practice and giving individual feedback, I need to practice, practice, practice.  I can use peer evaluation to find out if I am improving on these skills.  Also I can videotape myself and watch it to see how well I am performing these skills.

I need to provide more group feedback while the whole class is performing an activity.  Especially, I need to provide positive and specific feedback to the class.  Also, I need to work on providing corrective general and specific feedback.  I can improve this by practicing and being observed by my peers or by an expert teacher.  (#4; 56)

I could have had my student that helped me demonstrate be more in front of the class so that everyone could see the demonstration better.  I should not be involved in the guided practice when I was a students' partner.  I need to be supervising the whole class.  Also I need to go step by step during guided practice with the class to perform the skill.

Granted I was on crutches so I could not demonstrate to the class how to properly perform the different activities.  I had to simply explain to the class about how to perform the activities.  So if I was not on crutches I could perform the activities to the class.  I just need to keep practicing my instructional skills to improve and get better.

It can be done better if I take my time while giving instructions, not rush, that way I will remember to be loud and clear, and also remember to use the proper cue words.  (#2; 34)

I was above average on positive, general feedback.  I need to give students more positive, specific feedback.  I also need to give more corrective feedback.  I rarely gave group feedback.  I think it would be easier to give feedback to a larger class.  (#4;43)

Demonstration should be from different angles; check for understanding; Make sure to explain safety rules for a game (Steal the Bacon) and for techniques (hurdles).  The hard part & what I need to work on is explaining all of the information & safety rules without babbling—which I can tend to do.  (#3;52)

I think the second day I was more confident.  I used the "load & explode" key words a lot & I think the students responded to that very well.  My explanation of the task where people should stand exactly and where the partner should throw from needed some work because they were a little crowded & with that skill & the other person starting in the way it could have been a safety hazard.

I know the main thing I can do is speak up.  I also neglected to give safety tips and that is very important.  I need to warn them of hitting someone w/ the racket.  My managerial tasks could improve by having the rackets out & by using more guided practice instead of individual practice.  I should have them do it at the same time.  (#1;64)

Come up with better cues & use them more often so the students remember them.  I also need to check for understanding before sending the students off to do the task because I had to waste some time explaining how to do it again while they were practicing. (#2;48)

There are a number of ways I can improve in an attempt to become a more effective teacher.  When I performed my demonstration at the beginning of the lesson, I should have thrown and released the Frisbee to have given them a more realistic and accurate picture of the skill.  I needed to be more clear and concise in my question to them on a skill element.  When the students performed their skill, I should have been walking around and observing their technique.  This would have been a perfect opportunity for me to have given specific feedback to individuals.  I should have had them executing more than one throw so they could have built & formulated an understanding in technique. At the end of the drill I should have had them gather around me and asked them key questions about the skill.  This would have given me feedback of whether or not they understood the key elements of the skill.

I can improve in a number of ways.  After sending the students to execute independent practice, I was too predictable in walking around and supervising the students.  I need to project my voice across the area and acknowledge the farthest group.  During one of my drills, I disclosed too many rules.  While questioning them for understanding, I forgot some of the rules.  During my instructions, I didn't keep it simple and short.  I gave them the important information then added more information.  While questioning them for learning, I discovered they were clueless.  I've learned only to deliver the essential information.

I can improve my feedback and deliver more individual positive general feedback.  My results were slightly below the goals of three per minute.  My individual positive specific feedback met the goals of three per minute.  The categories that I had not given feedback in were individual corrective general, group corrective general and specific.  Of all the categories I only met my goal in one of them.  I would really like to improve the group feedback because I fell quite short in this category.  To improve I will conscientiously try to give more feedback in the area I was low in.

The one thing I noticed I could have done better is to use one of the students in the demonstration.  I also could have made the demonstration a little more clear by having a Frisbee thrown to me.  I just assumed the students knew what a pass would look like. Another thing I noticed is I could have included more cue words for the catch.  (#2;65)

One thing I can improve on is my general corrective feedback.  I feel this feedback is important because it keeps every student on task and thinking about how they can improve.  I also think it would be beneficial to stop the entire group to give corrective feedback so I don't have to continue repeating my feedback.

After observing myself in this teaching video, I would try to make sure that the students fully understand what the correct mechanics of the skills are before having disperse & also allow for more practice time and feedback.  Hopefully w/ more time & practice, I could decrease my anxiety levels & relax more during the lecture.

It could be better if I made sure I gave more clear & simply defined instructions on what I want done, then demonstrated the activity followed by checking for understanding.  From observing my video, I felt like I only briefly described what they were to do for the task in general instead of giving clear & explicit task instructions.  Improvement should come with practice.  (#3;64)
