First PED255 Class

In my first PED255 class, all students had to teach.  We were given a few choices of sports and had to teach a five minute mini lesson.  The tough aspect of this was that nobody was prepared to teach.  Each student had to come up with something on the spot!  I choose to teach a little bit about volleyball.  I took volleyball last semester so I felt comfortable in teaching some of those skills.  I don't think I did too bad but there were definitely some things I can improve on.
While typing out my transcript, one thing I noticed was that my voice was not very intriguing.  It kind of stays at the same level without much excitement.  Also, at the beginning of the lesson, I didn't give a great intro/hook.  I could have used more a better progression into the drill, although I thought the drill itself was pretty effective and provided a challenge.  After watching the video, I realized I didn't give much positive or constructive feedback.  I kind of hung around and just let my peers do what they were doing.  In conclusion, I do have somethings to work on, but I feel like I am on the right track.
