skype reflection

My group presented an example of a "six word memoir" using an exclamation point (!) we tried to make our example funny and about a topic that they would find interesting so that they would like it more and it would be more memorable. i also used a funny picture and told them the story of how i got the picture.

My mini lesson wasn't that good i believe because it was made even more mini by our connections being interrupted. i am not sure how much they liked it because it cut out right before my punchline, making me just feel like a bad comedian rather then a good teacher.

this taught me that it takes lots of preparation and practice to be a good teacher, you have to be fun to keep the kids attention but at the same time teach them the info that you want them to learn, which as anyone may have guessed is very difficult

next time we Skype their class we should do something more interactive, maybe a game of some sort to get more people involved.

  1. Hi,

    This is Ms. Bettess. Your lesson was perfect. They heard your line and laughed (check out Ms. McLachlan's video of it). My students learned a lot and enjoyed the whole lesson. Technology doesn't work sometimes but we are use to that in our classroom. We'd love to do something more interactive too. Thank you for interacting with us.
