In the 3220 course, we learn about the 10-minute mini lesson and present 3 lessons each. Following each lesson that you teach, you discuss how the lesson went with your instructor and he gives his feedback. Then your classmates also give their feedback. It is a great way to see through the eyes of your students how well you completed your set objective.
One of the best things about preparing a mini lesson like this is that any type of Web 2.0 tool that is introduced in 3240 could be used to enhance virtually any mini lesson.The next best thing about this, is that the time commitment is only for the first creation of the lesson, as the material can then be used repeatedly, freeing up a great deal of instructor time in the future. Adding in web 2.0 tools adds more depth to the lesson by introducing a variety of ways to teach the objective, moving away from traditional lecture-based instruction.
it is also a great way to learn time management as the lesson so are only 10 minutes, you become much more aware of where and how you spend your time.
Im glad I got to take 3240 before 3220 as I was primed to open my scope of possibilities within the mini lessons.
