Guided Learning

This week in class we had to teach a lesson we had created on our own. This was the first time I had ever created my own lesson plan and taught it. Overall, I think that I did fairly well. I used Popplet while I taught. This was very effective for me, because I was able to use it like an outline. While watching my other classmates teach I noticed they did several things that worked will. One was a quiz at the end. I had originally planned to do a quiz at the end on Kahoot!, but I couldn't successfully log in to my account, so I ended up just winging that portion of my lesson and just asking questions instead. That is one of things that I plan to change for Guided Learning 2.0. I would like to figure out what went wrong with my Kahoot! account as well. Technology worked into my lesson very well since I used Popplet to present my lesson.

While watching the video I had a total face palm sort of moment. One other thing I plan to improve on my next lesson is I apparently need to learn my left and right. I was so embarrassed to see that as I was teaching the different chambers of the heart I totally screwed up my left and right. I am not really sure how I messed that one up, but I'll be sure to get it right next time.
