1. Reflection for Lab 2A
I have found quite a fair share of criticism during my short lesson but what caught my attention while watching the youtube video was that during the drill, when I had the students line up and practice their form against the wall, I had walked behind the students to observe their form but had stopped to move basketballs that had been in the area from the previous lesson. I did not recall doing this in my lesson but looking at the video I felt like this was a good effort to keep a safe environment for my class by removing potentially dangerous situation such as tripping of the balls. I learned a lot during this lesson and now will be prepared with more than one lesson to teach in the future. Also, know that learning is achieved by making mistakes and fixing them. I plan on reducing and eliminating the number of mistakes I make in the upcoming Labs so I strive to become the teacher that I know I am capable of being.

2. I am not sure how to put a document in so I am just copying and pasting. The format is going to look awful.

Student's use of time coding form

Teacher: Jason Moore Class: EDU 255
Topic: Shooting a soccer ball Grade: Middle School
Date: September 18, 2009 # of Students: 10
Time analysis codes: Decision is based on what 51% of the observed students are doing at the time.

M = Management Time when most students (over 50%) are not receiving instruction or involved in lesson activity (e.g., changing activities, getting out or putting away equipment, listening to behavior rules or reminder).
A = Activity Time when most students (over 50%) are involved in physical movement (e.g., catching a ball, throwing at a target, running).
I - Instruction Time when most students (over 50%) are receiving information about how to move or perform a skill (e.g., how to move using all the space, watching a demonstration, listening to instructions).
W = Waiting Time when most students (over 50%) are not involved in the other categories (e.g., group activity but only one or two are participating, waiting for a turn, off-task behavior, waiting for the teacher to give directions).

13 14 15 16 17 18

Percent of M time = 200 ÷ 30 = 15 %
TOTAL M seconds TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of A time = 200 ÷ 50 = 25 %
TOTAL A seconds TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of I time = 200 ÷ 90 = 45 %
TOTAL I seconds TOTAL LESSON seconds

Percent of W time = 200 ÷ 30 = 15 %
TOTAL W seconds TOTAL LESSON seconds

Management < 15% = 1 pt.
Activity > 50% = 2 pts.
Instruction < 30% = 1 pt.
Waiting < 5% = 1 pt. Total Score (M+A+I+W)= 1 For mana
