Reflection On Public Service Announcement Skills

Improved Essays
Class #10 (Lab during class #9)
Readings: None listed in the outline (PSA Presentation day!) Today we had all of our Public Service Announcement assignments present in class. Some were videos, slideshows and poems. Over all, it was very interesting to see and learn about all of the different trauma related fields, theories, facts and activities. I think that everyone brought forward a creative presentation, making their PSA their very own. I truly enjoyed this class and think that it followed through with the amount of learning potential it offered.
1. What did this class mean to you?
To me, this class meant opening my eyes to even more topics and subtopics included with trauma healing, and then being able to take that knowledge and apply it in

How did it make me feel?
I felt very interested in exploring the topic, but this course did seem like an end to wrap up our journey in learning about trauma healing. I feel disappointed about the end of the course content however I also feel inspired and encouraged to apply what I have learned. I feel reflecting on the class that this was a perfect topic to end on, as it embraces all of the aspects of trauma and trauma healing we have explored so far.
3. How did the class connect (or not) to the readings (citing the readings)?
The readings connected fairly well to the mindfulness aspect that we explored the other week, however I personally can understand how mindfulness and the ability to be self-aware is something that correlates with resiliency directly.
4. What did you learn about yourself during the class?
This class I learned that this is probably my favourite class that I’ve ever taken. In reflection, I really appreciated the organized and layer based way of learning. Each lesson was building off the last, and that made it easier for me to learn. I figured out that personally I learn better this way, because I like to apply what I have learned in further lessons which is something I have been able to do this

    I have learned that even if classroom teaching isn’t for me I will have many other opportunities to get a good job. Overall, I enjoyed this course and I am happy with the major I have chosen.

They think based…

    The textbook was also very helpful and supplied me with a great read on all the information. I feel like I have learned a great deal in this class and have an appreciation for Educational Psychology.

    I really enjoyed working with Hope – we both have a similar collaborative style which I appreciated, and it was great to bounce ideas back and forth with her to figure out how exactly to make our lesson as best we could. I said this in my last reflection and I will gladly say it again, I love collaboration and group discussion. The collaboration piece in terms of forming a lesson is something new to me, but I can hardly get enough of it, and I hope that I can continue doing that with my peers when I get into the schools. I do feel that it is much easier for me to work with one other person rather than two, as I can sometimes get self-conscious about my ideas if there are louder voices in the room. However, I feel like I work really well with one other person when trying to collaborate and create unique and engaging lessons.…

    I honestly, don’t think it could have gone much better. During my last field experience, I worked a lot on improving my language when talking with students. For example, saying “I need you to” rather than “can you?” My supervisor said my language and demeanor were great in helping the lesson be the best that it could be. I was ecstatic at her feedback because it was something that I focused on improving in the past. I worked a lot on clarity and felt that in the lesson the students understood directions and goals for the interactive read aloud.…

    In fact this class was one of my favorite parts of this year. I really liked all the hands on experience got. I find that I learn better when I can physically feel what I’m trying to learn about. So going out into the shop really helped me capture what we were learning about. I enjoyed meeting new friends in this class and getting to work with people I didn’t know.…

    All of these things are very valuable to my learning because of the way they teach me more about how I learn and what I need to do to continue to learn in a fun and interesting way.

I feel like being able to learn in a way that suits me is so much better that traditional teaching methods because it helps me to develop and shape my understanding of learning and creativity through my…

    Identifying basic personal learning style sort of feeds-back the mastery for that learning style. Knowing one 's learning style from student perspectives, helps a person to become a better learner, because it give back so many skills such as learning skills, incitation skills, helps expand memory, and also a better understanding of materials.
