So professional experience has official begun. Week 1 went by in a flash and now week 2 is about to get under way.
Classes are going well, I observed a few in my first week as well as being fortunate enough to spend time exploring unit materials. At the end of the week I taught year 11 Geography – Unit overview, connecting people and places. This class would see the first of my ICT materials implemented….at least that was the plan. It seems that I ran out of time to use/get through all that I wanted, meaning I will actually play the online game tomorrow. Stay tuned for the outcome!
It has actually been nice to start prac at the beginning of term; previously my allocations have been towards the middle and end. Starting the term means being able to see how everything rolls out. As term 4 is a short term for seniors there is a lot to get through in a very short period of time.
Thus far, I have also been lucky enough to attend/assist at an Open Day for junior students and families interested in the school. This was a great experiences as it was the first time I had attended such an event since leaving school. Not only that, it was a great chance for me to tour the school, as all I saw during the week was the path to staff meeting, the staff room and my classroom. With the exception on lunch duty, which was actually the permitter of the staff room.
Here’s to another week 🙂
