Lab C Poland..Team Handball
For our Lab C me and Jason chose the country Poland, and decided to teach Team Handball. Although Poland did not really have a national sport. Handball was something that was really popular over there, and is widely liked in Poland. Although my teaching session had started off terrible because the homemade kielbasa that my uncle still makes down in Scranton did not fit into any of the pots that I had, so I was not able to cook it, and bring it into class for everyone to have. To make matters worse, my room mate had apperantly found a different way to cook the kielbasa, and ate it while I was gone for the weekend. As for my actual teaching, I thought that things went very well. I had a good visual aid that related to my country and the sport. Things also went very smoothly while teaching some of the different aspects of throwing in team handball. I felt that I spoke very clearly, and was able to keep the classes attention very well. I thought that I gave good examples, but needed to change positions while doing various demonstrations. I thought that I improved on keeping my eye on the entire class versus last time teaching. I would have to say that I let things go a little long, and we were not able to get into many variations. But for the most part I had a great time teaching this, and I felt like the class really enjoyed it as well. I think that I am improving everytime I teach, and cant wait till Lab D when I get to teach something that I am not really familiar with, like aerobics!!!
