Hi! I applaud you for having your students get in touch with this list as I
wish my professor had done when I was taking my methods classes. The question
I have is why are you having your students teach their lessons to each other?
I had to do that in college and mostly I felt that it was a waste of
time--both in trying to teach the lesson and to sit through everyone else's.
Plus, I haven't even looked at them since I have become a teacher and won't
use them. Isn't there some way that you could have the students teach the
lessons to actual students. Even if they worked in a team and a few of them
developed the lesson and taught it would seem more beneficial. I had to
complete 50 pre-student teaching hours and could have used this opportunity to
complete some hours while I was fulfilling a part of my methods class. Just
something to consider! Susan Briggs

a couple of weeks I will take them to "Mac" lab and have them research some
material for the lesson plans they will each teach to the other class members.
They will write a lesson plan, prepare demonstration materials (models,
visuals, etc), and teach. As this semester is Art Activities II, directed at
the concerns of secondary students, their lesson will directed to the class as
if they are Art I.>>
