Today I taught my first lesson as a student teacher. It went well, although I found out afterward that my voice is too quiet to be heard very well at the back of the classroom, so I need to speak up. I’ll also go back to using the whiteboard – I was using a document camera, but it’s turned away from the class, which is probably what makes it hard to hear me. I prefer writing on the board anyway, and it’s easier to see all of the students at once. I am learning a lot from my teachers, and know that I will be a better teacher thanks to them!
Now I have to practice… today’s is “Don’t give me attitude.” I figure that’s better than “Shut up, you punk!”
