On Monday, I had the opportunity to gain an interesting new experience–teaching back to back to back. The instruction session were all for evaluating sources, but they were aimed at assignments for two separate teachers. I spent the morning alternating back and forth between SEC football and Mardi Gras, and wondering why in the world I’d forgotten to bring a bottle of water. The first session most the most talkative of the three, and it made me agree with Sara that students who choose to take their class Monday mornings at 8 AM must be overachievers. The students seemed to understand to what I was trying to teach them, but I forgot to introduce myself in the little bit of nervousness I came into the session with. The second two session were still interacting well, but it was a few students speaking, instead of the larger group as a whole. I feel like the “grocery store magazine” meta cognitive activity went over well, and the students seemed to enjoy the topics and resources. Overall, I feel like I accomplished my teaching goals for the session.
List of Things to Remember for Next Sessions:
- Introducing myself
- Wear a matching pair of comfortable shoes (…don’t ask)
- Write down the Section Number
