Today for my teaching lesson we did bowling. The lesson overall I felt went pretty well. We started off with the basic release and worked on getting our shots to go straight down the ally. During this time I feel that I gave a good amount of feedback, which was something that I have been struggling with in my past lessons. There were a few disciplinary problems that I had to take care of during the lesson but managed to get through them and continue the lesson.
I made a scoring power point to help the students who did not know how to keep score. I believe this helped the students out a lot. Many students did not know how to keep score before and after walking around and watching I feel that they did in fact learn how to keep score so my power point was a success.
Bowling is a great lifetime activity that anyone can do and have fun with. After class a few of us stayed after to bowl a game. Something I noticed was that anyone really can bowl and have fun. In the lane next to us, there were some disabled children who were bowling and having a great time. Their parents were able to change the environment so they could be successful and have fun, which is the most important thing. On the other end of the bowling ally were a group of older ladies who were all having a great time. I do believe bowling is a limelong activity that i am going to take advantage of through out my lifetime and others should too. I feel like everyone enjoyed this bowling lesson. It was something different for everyone to be able to do and have fun.
