Throughout this whole project, I have done a lot of research and findings. From this, I have seen how much research is put into starting something small, such as swimming lessons. I have found that it takes more than one person to start and make these lessons happen. Not only this, but I also have found that it is extremely hard to make these lessons happen, because of the different time schedules that the life skills students have and my class schedule. Throughout research, I think it has opened my eyes to the other classes in the school that not everyone knows about. I have discovered the opportunities that they have compared to the opportunities that we have. Furthermore, as I did more research, I had to contact and talk to many adults to make these lessons possible, both in person and on the phone. From all of the research and findings, I have learned more about the students in the school and more about my two passions and what I can do with them.
Pitch day is next Friday, and I have many feelings and emotions towards it. I am both excited and nervous for Pitch Day. I am nervous because, for one, we have to give a two minute speech and giving speeches are definitely not my favorite thing to do. I am nervous because many people are coming in to watch Pitch Day and I don't want people to think that my passions and what I am doing with them is not a good idea or is not possible. I am excited though, because I want people to see my project and possibly give me feedback on how I should work towards creating these swim lessons. Overall though, I have mixed feelings, both nervous and excited, to present my "pitch" for Pitch Day.
How much of the pool would I be able to use for these lessons?
Would I be able to use the equipment, such as kick boards, for the lessons?
What are the students swimming abilities?
Will the students be able to come down during flex?
