UTL 202 – Lopez November 24, 2009 Self-Reflection on Teaching at the End of the Semester At the beginning of my second semester in the UTeach program, I was extremely nervous about how, and if, I would be able to handle older students. I was worried that I would not be able to get my students engaged in social studies lessons and I was also nervous that I would have problems in classroom management. I am happy to say that none of my fears came to reality and that I had an extremely rewarding semester. One of my biggest concerns was writing lessons that would not only be fun but also informative because I am fully aware that sometimes social studies can be a little dry. When it came time to write my lessons, I was actually a little surprised about the ideas that started to run through my head. I had a lot of writing my lessons and thinking about the ways in which I could make subject that may not always be the most interesting into a lesson that would engage the students while also making them have a better understanding of the subject. It was one thing to just simply write a lesson that I thought would be entertaining but it was incredibly rewarding once I actually taught the lesson and saw the students engaged.
