After watching our evaluation DVD's i've come to realize my strengths and weaknesses as a Physical Educator. I believe my strong points are voice volume, confidence, and use of cues. I feel I need to work on being enthusiastic and animated when I explain an activity. It is important to show enthusiasm when working with students. Young students especially will not want to become involved if you dont seem excited about the task at hand. I also need to work on giving better feedback. Congruent feedback works directly with the cues you give your students. If I plan on giving my students helpful feedback it needs to be congruent with the cues I give my students to correctly perform an activity or task. I plan on working on these weaknesses in future classes as well as trying to incorporate other aspects we learned in class such as teaching by invitation, challenges, demonstration, and closure.
