Student teaching, here we come

February 20th, 2011 | Uncategorized | No comments

I went into my placement on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, and then I went to observe Holly down in Newport News on Thursday. Tuesday was a really fun day because my Anatomy section was giving presentations on research projects that they had been doing. They each had to research a different disease and […]

Another week down. I did the second half of my microteaching on Monday, and then went in the next day for the anatomy sections’ eye dissections, which was a lot of fun. My microteaching went fairly well, but even after the second run through there were some changes I would still want to make. The […]

I’m so glad this week is over…

I went in EVERY DAY this week, which is a great preview for student teaching. I was actually fairly pleased and received a compliment from my CT because she said she thinks I’m fully ready for student teaching. Last year she said she wouldn’t have let her student teacher start right away and wouldn’t have […]

Back to reality…

I went in this week and was able to set some dates for upcoming assignments with my CT. Since York was taking exams this week, I was only there on Monday, but I did get to help administer the 2AB exam that day. It was quite interesting. My CT asked me just to keep an […]

Last reflection of the semester!!

It’s been fun guys, but let’s face it. It’s time for a break:) I went in to school yesterday, and it was a very interesting day. It was a B day, so I had 1st period Biology, 2nd period Biology, and 3rd period Anatomy. 1st and 2nd period used the PRS system called “Qwizdom” to […]

It’s already December? Seriously?

I went in on Monday and Tuesday of this week, but most of my reflecting was done in the activity and demonstration posts (the previous two). I am, however, very proud of myself for one thing though. After turning in the “technology-based” lesson plan for our technology class, I did think it was a good […]

Mitosis Activity

November 30th, 2010 | Uncategorized | No comments

I did my activity for 2 different biology sections. I had them make a flip book of the phases of mitosis. However, I did leave a few things out that I changed from the first section to the second section. The first class seemed fairly bored with the activity. They had their pictures of mitosis […]

Demonstration Reflection

I went in on Monday morning to teach a lesson on mitosis. I had prepared my demonstration as a clay-mation of the process of mitosis, showing that mitosis is a dynamic process rather than the 4 static pictures that people see of the different phases. With the help of some good friends, I was able […]

I have to admit, I wasn’t really looking forward to this conference, but I actually had a great time. Thursday night’s lecture wasn’t what I was expecting, listening to Dennis Leary discuss being “the bad guy,” but I did enjoy his saying that everyone in his company knows that if there is a problem out […]

I can smell the turkey now!

Another week closer to Thanksgiving, and the end of the semester. I went in today and observed the first couple of periods. 1A was really fun because they had a test on the skeletal system, but it was an identification test, so we took the students to the KIVA (a pretty big conference room) and […]
