Week #8 Training One on One
This week, we worked more with the manual and actually reading through an entire lesson. We acted out one of the lessons with the guided CD. I wanted Bryann to know that it is possible to pick and choose which activities that may best fit a specific group of children vs. following the manual straight through.
Even though it is good to know how to teach from the manual, sometimes the art of being flexible during each moment of teaching is key to masterful leading in a group. Sometimes the flow of activities may change last minute depending on the group's energy level. And a good teacher will know and recognize the need for a change of pace if the situation arises.
