Timing is Everything

As I watched my second attempt for Lab A I felt that I did a better job than the first time. When I broke it down however, I feel I could and should have done a better job managing my time. In a three minute lesson, I spent more than half the time giving instructions where the students weren't active. One of my biggest problems was that I gave the students too many cues which not only confused them but also took up more time for instruction and less time for activity. We have a goal to have our students engage in activity for at least fifty percent of the time which I didn't achieve. Seeing students stand around is never a good thing and it's important to keep your students involved and active.
