I felt that this short lesson went great. I was happy with my voice and ability to be short and sweet which is definitely necessary in a 4 minute lesson. As you can see in my transcription I did explain a tad to much which you can also see on my time coding sheet but I refrained from saying umm and like a lot. I also tried to incorporate what I have learned in class thus far. I feel very comfortable in front of the class and I am just having fun.
On a side note, I participated in an APEM event yesterday which was pretty fun. There were two freshman there who were helping us out. I was giving them advice with cues and other tactics. It was cool to be on the other side of the spectrum.

In the first lab I feel that I was very relaxed and spoke clearly. I made sure to have a smile on my face so the students could see that I am passionate about what I am doing and they should be to. To make sure the students stay interested I will be sure to keep a smile on my face talk like I am excited and more importantly happy to be in class. Also I will not make it about me I will get the students involved so they can almost teach themselves and have more fun with it because the ball will be in their court. Although some things were not as good as I would have liked them to be I definitely thought it was a success.
