    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Lesson Re-do

I am currently in my field experience for Reading Methods. My first lesson I did in the classroom was observed my professor (he has to observe once this semester). In my perspective, I bombed it. I let it go too long and the kids were just distracted and didn’t understand what I was teaching. Because I felt so down about how my lesson resulted, my professor came in a second time. Today I gave my lesson in which he observed. I introduced my students to a new story in their basal reading, then used it to teach them about sequence in a story. My lesson was a minilesson instead of an extensive read aloud and lesson. I think because my first graders have such short attention spans (Because they are young), it was a much better suited lesson. It went really well and I had students engaged the whole time! Definitely a “good” teaching day.
