Microteaching = when we teach a lesson we created in front of our peers, pretending that they’re our students.
I always feel so prepared and then it hits me.
Again I talked down to my “students.” It’s weird, because I can feel myself doing it, but I can’t seem to stop it. I feel so uncomfortable and disjointed while I’m in front of my peers..
I am really glad that I never ever ever have to microteach again.
I thought that my acting experience would enhance my teaching abilities, but in this case it really doesn’t seem to. The exaggerated features that I rely on come off as insincere and patronizing.
I try to be clear and it sounds patronizing. I try to be sincere, and instructions are labeled as not clear enough.
On top of all of that, my boy interest doesn’t seem to be showing any interest in me as of late.
