    TEACHER PORTFOLIO: DAILY EXERCISE & HEALTH

    Teaching Philosophy Never thought I would be writing a teaching philosophy before this experience. I've always been a leader amongst my friends and my community and always had a goal of making a difference and inspiring people around me. I never imagine that to be through teaching. I never even saw myself as a teacher. Now here I am, a full semester experience in teaching and facilitating. Leadership, making a difference, and inspiring people is my teaching philosophy. I believe in order to be a great teacher you have to know how to lead. And leadership don't always mean being in the light and always running the show. Leadership to me means knowing when to step up and knowing when to take the back seat and let someone else contribute. I believe great leadership also means delegating responsibilities. This is very important when you are co-teaching. In order to be a great leader you also have to be a great listener. This is also extremely important when interacting and discussing with students. In personal training, this is called active listening. Letting someone else express themselves but showing that you are engaged. Being engaged shows that the person or student have the right to an opinion despite if you agree or disagree. I believe that as a teacher, your goal should always be to make a difference. Making a difference within a department and most importantly in the lives of your students. As a teacher you have to remember that you are an inspiration to your students. I am fully aware of this as a personal trainer. Much like my clients, my students in Daily Exercise and Health were always looking to me for answers and recommendations. Leadership plus making a difference and being an inspiration is the equation to becoming a great teacher.

    Self Assessment: I personally think I did the best I could as a facilitator of Daily Exercise and Health. But if I have to pick a number grade I would say an overall B+ for the seminar and an A- for my class. I've always been a facilitator from Personal training to the ALANA-A Big Brother & Sister program, to Peer Mentoring to Externship New York. My past experiences in leading my peers made me confident coming into this experience. My intentions were always doing what's best for my students. This entire semester was not about me, it was all about my students and their experiences in the course. I feel I could have contributed more in the seminar in terms of discussion but I definitely held back at times. I am very opinionated but unfortunately people sometimes don't like to hear the truth. Mostly because they are intimidated by the truth, like fitness mentor always said fear of the unknown. I completely understand because we all have different experiences and come from different walks of life. I realized this soon enough and decided to keep somethings to myself and not make anyone else uncomfortable

    Syllabus In Progress IDEAS: Daily Exercise & Health Syllabus

    Lesson Ideas -Why is exercise, health and nutrition important? -Common Sports Injuries, How To Fix/How to Prevent -Differences between different training styles and its effects on the body (Hypertrophy, Definition/Endurance, Strength, Power, Speed) -Creatine, Testosterone Boosters, Steroids, Masking Agents, Alcohol, Drugs, Doping, Performance Enhancing Drugs, Nitric Oxide Supplements, and any other popular substances/dietary supplements that the class may find interesting and their effects on the human body -Lifting Techniques for different body parts -Talk on Olympic Weightlifting (Katie Polakowski may be willing to come in and be a guest speaker about Olympic Weightlifting (Her father trained an Olympian for Weightlifting) and how it is useful (Bryce Boratko is willing to come in for weightlifting and also for crossfit.) -Stretching Techniques -The Anatomy of the Muscle/ How it breaks/rebuilds -Anaerobic Training vs. Aerobic Training -How to write ones own programming Course Facilitation Ideas -Bring class to Weight Room and various places where to workout and go through certain exercises -Go through Interesting Facts found through the past week -Discussions/Presentations -Integrate Videos about exercise form/various kinds of exercise, Assignment Ideas -Have each member in the class come in with an interesting fact about exercise they found through a verifiable source and that can help start off the class discussions and also potentially spark some subject Ideas to cover in the course -Exercise Assignments -Self Programming Assignments

  • Page 10

    -Have each student make a presentation about a given category that pertains to exercise, health, nutrition etc. -Log Exercise Pattern Addition Lesson Ideas: Sounds like everything we discussed so I have nothing to change. At this point we can start doing research on these topics and find effective links to include. If you want we can split up the lesson ideas or topics, do the research and highlight major ideas to focus on during class discussions. We can even include discussions questions to save us some time later. Olympic lifting- since we are planning on talking about Olympic lifting, we should also include crossfit and how the two differentiate. (I Agree) -Teach/discuss the two separately and talk about how they relate and differentiate. -This way we can also bring in a CrossFit expert. Potentially someone from your gym? -Supervisor from your internship? If not I can always work on bringing someone in from Reebok. (I will check and ask my supervisor but i will need to know dates before i ask him, his specialty is crossfit and olympic lifting and has a degree in cooking for nutrition) (Question: Do we have a budget for this class to bring people in?) You know what? My guess is no, but thats a great question for Chris! Do you want me to ask or you? doesnt matter when is the next meeting? Weather/Seasonal effects: -I did research on this so I should have the link somewhere (Cool) Course Facilitation Ideas: Talking about weight rooms visits, certain exercises, and exercise assignments I was thinking we begin with the physical aspect of the class. That way we can discuss workout techniques, forms, stretching and running (breathing) techniques; all which avoids injuries in the gym. (True) Things to do to not become a "wounded warrior" (people who go hard in the gym or on a run rather than gradually working their way into it, and getting early injury) I learned this term from my PR professor. (Ill Look Forward To That) This way we can introduce long term assignments -Weekly runs (How about weekly cardio assignments instead to make it more flexible or for those who have a preference and we taylor the assignment to them specifically?) Cardio assignments sounds good- that gives them more options and still aligns with our goal (Cardio) -Weekly workouts (keep track of improvements, reps and sets) etc. (Yes) The first week according to Chris' email is about the introduction of the program: The purpose of the democratic education and specific content of the course (the syllabus) Before this process who can play a couple ice breaker games to get everyone to get familiar with each other and get comfortable.

  • Page 11

    After talking about syllabus, we can probably then wrap up the class with discussing class expectations, creating a safe space, respect for other students, instructors. Listening to others when they speak and respecting other's opinions. Creating a comfortable learning environment. Then finally give them time to elaborate on individual goals on a piece of paper, share with the class and we can also come up with class goals and write it down on the broad and document it of course. After going over the ground rules on the first week, we can then start discussing the physical aspect of the class. That way they have the knowledge to start doing stuff on their own as soon as possible. And they can start to apply what they are learning as soon as possible. Focus on the physical aspect for the next 2 weeks then start going more into the intellectual stuff. That way things will start making sense or click. Rather than learning something and not knowing how it relates to the real world or exercising, you know what I mean? (Yea i got you, some stuff Will be necessary right away however from a nutritional/recovery standpoint with regards to exercise) Assignment Ideas: Interesting facts could also relate to their personal growth. What are they observing about themselves, any patterns, etc. (I like it) Recourses: Introduce them to lots of other resources on campus: Personal training is available if needed (Leahy Contact) (Well you and I are 2 of the 3 personal trainers there anyway) Group exercise classes on campus and the different options (Susan contact)

    Encourage guys to sign up because it is not for women alone. Encourage girls to use free weight machines/community gym because it's not for

    guys alone. (Very true)

    Misconceptions: -Another discussion- I also got a chance to read through the DEM Tex-Tips for course design & First Day to Final Grade articles. I highlighted some great tips that will help us through the syllabus and overall structure of the class. At some point this week I'll put them together and let you take a look at it. So far so good though! We are making great progress! More update: Filling in these questions/ topics using the discussion above should be the next step to the official syllabus:

Skills: -Homework assignments (Should be both written and physical) -They are using techniques we are teaching (Before we teach technique you and I need to meet to go over ourselves which techniques to teach because we have slightly different backgrounds for example, a squat) Right! Its important that we are on the same page -Exercise Assignments -Self Programming Assignments (Progress)

    -Have each student make a presentation about a given category that pertains to exercise, health, nutrition etc. -Log Exercise Patterns -Discussions and participation

    Stage 2: Part 3- Activities, Appropriate Exercise: Assignments/Tasks that demonstrates understanding: How assignment help students apply class concepts: -Bring class to Weight Room and various places where to workout and go through certain exercises -Go through Interesting Facts found through the past week -Discussions/Presentations -Integrate Videos about exercise form/various kinds of exercise -Have each member in the class come in with an interesting fact about exercise they found through a verifiable source and that can help start off the class discussions and also potentially spark some subject Ideas to cover in the course -Exercise Assignments -Self Programming Assignments -Have each student make a presentation about a given category that pertains to exercise, health, nutrition etc. -Log Exercise Patterns Misconceptions: Stage 3: Key Text or Resources: Why students are reading this text & using the resources? What big ideas will students understand as a result of the reading? Personal training is available if needed (Leahy Contact) (Well you and I are 2 of the 3 personal trainers there anyway) Group exercise classes on campus and the different options (Susan contact)

    Encourage guys to sign up because it is not for women alone. Encourage girls to use free weight machines/community gym because it's not for

    guys alone. (Very true)

    Relevant tips: Learning Objectives (3-5): Clarify learning structure: Why we addressed certain topics before others Specify the readings by authors & editions: Explain when reading is expected to be done (easily accessed-link or hard copies)

  • Page 14

    Discuss course policies (class attendance & turning in assignments) (This is extremely necessary because I dont want people to think of this class as a freebie because there are many people who really want to be there. I think this will help avoid anyone from slacking) Absolutely Students feed back midway through the semester Provide a course calendar or schedule -When readings and assignments are due, page numbers for reading, chapter and section numbers Out of class learning: How students will use assignments and reading to improve critical thinking skills & how students can apply course concepts to their lives

    Running Discussion Class Arrangement

    Formed circle- keeps students engaged Starting Discussion

    Inform students of the topic & expectations Give students time to think or to generate thoughts before discussing Get everyone involved

    Free Writing

    Helps them formulate their ideas before beginning discussion. Have them get out a piece of paper, give them a question and five minutes to

    answer it Tell them we aren't collecting it, just want to see their pens moving for 5 minutes Call on students or ask students to volunteer

    Make a list

    Ask questions a generate a list on the board or on a piece of paper What is each of you looking to take away from this class/experience? (Specific

    goals) I like this Why are you taking the class? (Interest or credit, or both)- Answer honestly I like

    this also Pair and Share

    A way to get students talking to each other & moving into group discussion Put students into pairs and give them a question or a task We can either assign the same question to each pair or different questions and

    have them share with the rest of the class their findings Small Group Activities

    Split class into two different groups Figure out ahead of time how we are going to split the groups

    Facilitating Discussion (Some Do's & Donts ) Don't embarrass a student for any comment Take all comments seriously Don't let discussion get stuck

  • Page 15

    Don't let students stray too far from your goals for the class (stay on topic) Don't put quite students on the spot by calling on them Call on quiet students after free writing- they already have something prepared

    Wrap up discussion Think of closing statement ahead of time

    What if we add some small lecture portion into our class focusing on what people want to learn on a given day? We should also have a presenter/special guest section somewhere in the syllabus when we actually begin writing the actual dates.

    Class Weekly Outline Week 1: Types of physical activity & why is it Important: Aerobic activities- increases heart rate (cardio) Moderate activities Vigorous activities Muscle-Strengthening activities- push-ups and lifting Bone-Strengthening activities- Jumping Balance & Stretching activities- enhance physical stability & flexibility Article to read about basic nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/downloads/TenTips/DGTipsheet1ChooseMyPlate.pdf http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/protein-foods.html (protein food) Physical Activity: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/physical-activity/why.html http://www.choosemyplate.gov/printpages/PhysicalActivity/physical-activity.what.pdf Why is it Important: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/printpages/PhysicalActivity/physical-activity.why.pdf How much is needed: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/printpages/PhysicalActivity/physical-activity.amount.pdf

Factors Influence Flexibility Genetic bone structure Tight or loose ligament Stress & muscle tension Injuries Age Pregnancy Cold temperature Active Stretching (also known as unassisted stretching) When a person does a stretch by himself by contracting the opposite muscles in order to lengthen the target muscle. Passive Stretching (also called assisted stretching) When the muscles are stretched by either another person or a machine. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)

  • Page 18

    a way of stretching that uses the muscles response to lengthening and tightness. When contracting a muscle very tightly, the Golgi tendon organs will relax the muscle. The muscle can be moved into a new position. Three Common version of PNF: Hold-relax (HR) involves a helper holding the part that is to be stretched while the person pushes or pulls against the other person without moving the joint. The muscle will then relax and the helper can reposition the body part. Contract-relax (CR) involves the helper holding the muscle, and the person moving the joint in opposition to the helper. Once the muscle is relaxed the part can be moved into the new position. Contract-relax, antagonist-contract (CRAC) involves tightening the muscle then relaxing it and tightening the opposing muscle, which will move the original muscle to a new position. Myofascial Release: Can be performed using foam roller, PVC pipe, quadballer, baseball, lacrosse ball, wine bottle etc. This form of self massage helps to break up trigger points (knots), and smooth tight fascia (connective tissue that surrounds our muscle) while increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues. And re-aligns the muscle so it grows back correctly and more effectively. Dynamic Stretching: Involves performing dynamic movements in order to produce full range of motion in the joint. Dynamic stretching should be done prior to intense exercise to warm up tissues and increase ROM in the joints. Example: Leg swings, high knees, spider man stretch, walking quad stretch, bear crawls, samson stretch, duck walks etc. Static Stretching: Refers to holding a stretch in order to produce a desired change in the length of the muscle. The longer the stretch is held, the greater the change. (15-30seconds- quiz question) Ballistic Stretching: A fast moving stretching, in which the person bounces into the stretch. It is not recommended for most people because it can activate myotatic reflex, leading to tighter muscles and more injuries. Class Outl ine: 8-8:30-Sexual Assault Discussion 8:30-9-Fact of the day

Open kinetic Chain Closed Kinetic chain (CKC)- feet & hands generally on the floor Open Kinetic chain (OKC) Isolation- type exercise Feet or hands are not connected to a fixed resistance Muscle Soreness Acute muscle soreness- happens while person is working & continues right after the activity is stopped. Lactate acid builds up within the muscle in the absence of oxygen, and the muscle may become temporarily inflamed. Delay onset muscle soreness (DOMS)-occurs 24-48hrs post-exercise

  • Page 22

    Reasons are not known but theories include damage done to the muscles during the workout & swelling due to increased immune response. Common Problems Many Beginners May have a difficult time balancing & doing activities which require a powerful torso to keep the body still May find it difficult to determine which muscles to contract to move in new ways May work too hard, results in becoming more sore and possibly quitting the program May not recognize the difference between expected muscle soreness and the pain of injury Over Training Symptoms Decline is physical performance loss of muscle strength Decreased appetite Nausea Muscle tenderness etc. Training Types : How are you training your muscles and for what purpose? Defining the following Muscle Hypertrophy, Endurance, Strength/Power, Speed, Aerobic Training,Anaerobic? Losing weight, what cuts fat? What gains fat? What sport are you training for and what is the best type of training for that? Why would you want to train in more than one category? -Differences between different training styles and its effects on the body -What do you already know? -Hypertrophy- Breaks down into Myofibrillar vs. Sarcoplasmic Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy- The focus on increasing the actual size of the muscle (Fad Muscle) Myofibrillar Hypertrophy- Focuses on the strength of the muscle more rather than the actual growth of the muscle (Practical Use Muscle) -Strength Training- Combines both Myofirbillar and Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy (1-6 Repetitions) this is like a Power Lifter, Olympic Lifter or other Strength based Athletes, This is a focus on Power/Speed/Strength -Several Repetitions like 8-12 focus on Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy like Bodybuilders

  • Page 23

    -Endurance Training focuses on around 12 or more repetitions which is another example of mainly Sarcoplasmic Hypertrophy Athletes like Track Runners, Basketball Players etc. -Endurance training- is the fastest way to cut fat and to define the muscles. Helps to make the difference between someone who is strong and bulky and someone who is strong and ripped. -Aerobic Training- This is your Cardio A form of exercise that is relatively low intensity but is carried out over a longer period of time. Refers to the intense amount of oxygen used while exercising. (Distance Running/Cycling/Swimming/Walking) -Anaerobic Training- Exercise that of which is intense enough to trigger lactic acid formation. Promotes Strength/Speed/Power for NON endurance athletes. In a form Body Builders do this as well for muscle mass building. This can be defined as exercise essentially anywhere from seconds up to around two minutes. Past two minutes at an intense rate becomes aerobic. (Sprinting/Olympic Lifters/Powerlifters) -Running Techniques- Sprinting vs. Distance Running- The breakdown of the aerobic vs. the anaerobic exercising between the two Week 5: Diet ing Techniques Class Notes: Dieting Techniques - Abs are made in the kitchen 40% in the Gym 60% in the kitchen Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) & Activity Factor: The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is an equation that is used in order to determine how much energy one typically uses in a given day based on their Height, Weight, and Age. The product of the Basal Metabolic Rate equation is then multiplied with a number called the Activity Factor. The Activity Factor is what measures the amount of activity a person has in a given day. Therefore, when combining both the product of your BMR and the correct Activity Factor number together, you can determine your healthy targeted calorie intake for a given day.

    BMR=655+(4.35xWeight(lbs.))+(4.7xHeight(in.))-(4.7xAge(years)) -Talk about Dieting within Training (What do I need to eat for success? Vegetarian, Paleo, Pescetarian, Vegan, etc.) Vegetarian- Eats Anything except Meat Flexitarian- Eats virtually anything but makes a conscious effort to not eat a Lot of meat Pescitarian- Eats Anything Except Mean but eats Fish. Paleo- Eats No Processed Foods, No Soy, No Dairy, No Carbohydrates, primarily Meat, Organic Fruits Vegetables, Nuts, Berries Etc. Vegan- Eats Anything Natural, therefore NO Animal Product Of Any Sort including small easy to miss ingredients like gelatin. Goals: To Lose Weight (AKA Cut Fat but not lose muscle)- Balanced diet. Focus on consisting of a lot A LOT of fruits and vegetables. Lean meats only. Drinking plenty of water to stay completely hydrated. This means eating less than your current BMRxActivity factor in order to cut over eating or cut out any extra calories that may be current in your diet. To Gain Weight (Muscle/Strength)- Focus on when you eat and how much. Eat lean meats, but more than you would if you were trying to lose weight. Remember if you are trying to gain, you need to put in more calories than your BMRxActivity Factor in order to allow your body the correct caloric nutrient amount. To Maintain Weight- Focus on Eating your correct BMRx Activity Factor. This will ensure you do not lose or gain weight as long as your food sources are clean and as natural as possible!! Ice cream to cover those last 500 calories WILL NOT CUT IT!! Things to remember- Fast Food is Fast Fat. Processed foods are ALMOST anyting in a package. Organic is much safer and much better for you than GMO foods which contain pesticides which can actually be BAD for your health. Free range eggs, meats, grass fed etc. are always your best bet. Fat Is not BAD. Polyunsaturated fat, Monounsaturated fat and a very small amount of saturated fat are good for you. Trans fat or a lot of saturated fats... GET RID OF THEM. Eat Healthier, Live Happier. (Literally the better you eat the better your mood is, this is scientifically proven!)
