During Lab C we got paired up with partners and my partner was Ricky Sternkopf. When looking up information on curling we decided that I was going to teach first. Together we needed to create a lesson plan with different tasks. Before we could get set to teach we needed to think of how we where going to create equipment and I thought for the stone in curling we could use one gallon ice tea jugs. After planning on using these ice tea jugs we needed to get to work and drink nine one gallon ice tea jugs. As we began getting our collection of “stones” together we asked our roommates if they could contribute and they did. We
planned on freezing the jugs and performing a test run on Monday, it was a good thing we planned on this because some of our jugs cracked and therefore where no longer good. Then we decided to just fill them full of water and glue the tops on, this worked. We had brought nine jugs the amount we needed for the class, and Ricky had a great idea of bringing an extra just in case. Sure enough on the way inside the building one slipped and exploded all over the parking lot, good thing we planned ahead.
Curling was originated in
Through out the lesson I could tell that the students where having a blast using the draw throw, to send there “stone” to their partner. I saw that some of my students where getting this task very easy so I remembered my activity progression and had some of them switch to there left had and try to get the “stone” into the house, which is the target area. I felt during my lesson that I hit every target on the C-9 sheet that was required. During the task I was able to give feedback to over half of the class, which is what is desired. Also when looking at my videos you can see that I managed my time very well leaving lots of room for the activity. As you can see from my time coding sheet that I was able to accomplish everything desired.
Teaching curling was a great experience for Ricky and
