myself putting in a lot of energy to decrease the risk of potential loss of
interest. By this point in the day half of the group had already taught their
session and it was late in the lesson, causing the onset of fatigue. So to see
the improvement and smiles on the students faces that gave me indication to
the positive attitude and enjoyment I produced.
I was also able to see all these improvements through the feedback I was
given (see review for more information).
Question 3: What would you retain or change if you were to teach your
session again tomorrow?
Although my first ever experience with teaching was successful, there are
many things I need to improve on and further investigate to become a better
teacher. If I were to teach again tomorrow I would be sure to retain the set up
with the two stations as they were highly thought of by my learners (in
feedback). I think the stations gave the students a bit of variety as well as
freedom, allowing them to discuss the activity together while I walked around
giving feedback.
I would have also rethought the positioning of the stations, as although when I
was explaining the technique I had the students backs facing the sun, when
they were throwing they were looking into it which would have put them off,
made their eyes sore and tired and leading to loss of interest. Next time this
will be very carefully considered.
