1. During my teaching lesson everyone was actively participating and performing the skill, passing the soccer ball correctly. I felt that I was fairly organized and gave a clear explanation of the skill as well as a demonstration of the skill before the students attempted the skill. I also challenged the students and had them pass a further distance and attempt passing with their nondominant foot as well.
2. I think I need to be more confident in the material that I am presenting and teaching to the class. I also would like to try and incorporate more games and activities and try to be a little more unique with the presentation of my teaching. Rather than doing that same old boring drills I would like to have games and competitions to catch the students attention and get them more involved and have them enjoy pe and have them want to participate.
3. I think if i have more confidance then the students will listen better and they will be more motivated. By creating more games and a mnore unique approach to teaching skills students will be more excited and motivated to actively participate. Students that are having fun and learning will be able to get more out of the lesson and hopefull enjoy sports and activities enough that they will want to participate outside of pe class.

I was a bit nervous when we were thrown into a situation where you had to think on your feet. I think it was a good experience to have to think of a lesson plan and teach people you didn't know. Overall I think being able to have the skills to create a lesson with no previous planning is a very good skill to have and that you are a more valuable teacher if you have this quality.
