Table Tennis

During Wednesday's class both Eric and Justin taught. As the teaching experiences are progressing our professor is prompting different environment challenges that one would experience in the classroom. This approach allows us as teacher candidates to explore different behavioral management approaches and tactics. I really enjoyed Eric’s use of Yoga as his instants activity and the scaffolding was appropriately incorporated. His progression of task and variations were well thought out. Justin had an interesting instant activity. He posted approximately six different pictures of unhealthy foods which we had to Zumba dance towards. After we made it to each station we gave us a brief lesson on high fructose corn sugars. It was a simple, yet every effective approach to teach about the side effects and health concerns regarding HFCS. I will remember this activity as it’s likely that I’ll find a use for it myself one day.
