Being Vocal

Today our Professor drove home an important point - be loud!

Todays lesson had us focus on getting ready for our teaching on friday. We will do our presentations that we actually did the first day of classes. We are trying to improve upon our original work and build on it. We got in groups today with about 4 people and worked on having an opener that gets the classes attention and gets them ready for activity. I felt that helped because working with a few people is definitely a confidence booster because it lets you feel comfortable with what you want to present to the class.

When the class was almost over we split the class in two and sang (yelled) at each other. "There aint no bugs on us, there aint no bugs on us, there might be bugs on you guys but there aint no bugs on us." It was a goofy song but it was meant to drive home a point. By the end our professor had us basically yelling the song and the point was that as physical educators we need to be able to have our voices project loud enough so that the whole class can hear you. That way you don't need to bring everyone in every time you need to say something - that is just a huge waste of time - and we don't want to do that.
