Reflection #2

Today we were given several parts of a lesson and we were asked to organize the parts in the order that made sense to us. After we finished arranging parts we discussed why we made the choices we did for our lesson. It was helpful to know that we should not be so concerned about the order in which we present information as long as we have a good reason to do it. As part of class we also simulated a relay race and afterwards it was nice to debrief and use the same activity to write up a lesson plan. After working in small groups and constructing our own relay race lesson plan, coming back together and walking through the correct ways to write a lesson plan, made the information easier to grasp. After this introduction I understand a little better the standards and the learning objectives. I have discovered that it will be something I will get better at doing with time and practice; I will just have to do it.
