The lesson plan that I created for teaching table tennis has demonstrated my ability to implement NASPE standard 3, which involves planning and instruction. My lesson plan included appropriate goals and objectives that were aligned with the content of the lesson. I developed and implemented a progressive and sequential instruction plan that I was adapted to the diverse needs of the students to create an educational experience for the students.

The lesson plan that I created for teaching iDance also demonstrated my ability to implement NASPE standard 3, and also involved a new form of technology being used to create and educational lesson. My lesson involved the iDance technology which just came out and focuses on a dace video game that is used to teach dance in an educational classroom setting. This lesson took a lot of planning and preparation to first understand how the technology works and then develop a lesson plan that is both fun and also educational for the student and stimulates learning. I had to have a solid lesson planned and also be comfortable with the technology to ensure the class went smoothly. This lesson was a bit of a challenge but I felt comfortable with my abilities and my implementation.
