255 First Class!

Today was an interesting day for our first class for EDU 255! EDU 255 is titled "Basics of Effective Instruction in Physical Education." This class is very important because it is really going to shape us into future physical educators. This class is going to challenge me to think outside the box and expand on my teaching abilities. I have Professor Yang as my instructor and I knew he wouldn't waste one minute in class - even on the first day. He had cameras set up and 4 sets of balls as we walked into the gym. He told us we had to make up a 4 minute lesson plan on the spot of an activity and present it to the class. There was a set of basketballs so I chose to do chest pass and bounce pass. This is important because it helps you develop quick thinking on the spot. Professor Yang makes you feel prepared because he is constantly challenging you to think outside the box and do something different than what is considered "normal." Blogging is also an excellent way to stay in touch with what is current in the sports, fitness, education, and health field. It also helps you meet people and share your thoughts. Check out the video of my 4 minute lesson! The link is below:
