Xavier and I did our lesson together. We did our lesson on public speaking and the do's and don'ts about public speaking. We knew that there was going to be behavior issues in our class so we planned ahead and decided that one of us was going to walk around the class and make sure no problems occur. I feel like our plan worked pretty well because there weren't many issues in class. We tried to stick to the lesson plan as much as possible but we had to change the lesson on the fly a couple of times. We did not make any crazy changes to the lesson but we did what we had to do.
I think that the lesson went well for the most part. All of the students were interested in the lesson and like I said before, there were very little behavior problems which is always good. I really feel that it was a strong lesson and there is not much to change. The only thing i would change is maybe letting the students read the whole paper about public speaking before calling them up in front of class. The lesson went really well and I had a lot of fun working with Xavier.

Now that we are at the end of class I know a lot more about how to put together a digital story. I am working on my story with Xavier. It is going to be about public speaking and we are both pretty excited about what we are going to do with our story. I can't give specifics about it yet but it is going to be pretty funny. Like I said before I am really excited about this and im sure the entire class will enjoy it to.
