back to school
New definitions for intimidating:
-Your first day of class your professors pass out a 70+ page syllabus detailing the course content over the next 3 months.
-The syllabus informs you that out of the 20 different assignments during the quarter, your performance on just three projects will comprise the bulk of your grade for all assignments - 75%.
While last quarter focused on a lot of the various foundational theories behind education, learning, and child development, this quarter is the more "applicable knowledge" such as designing, implementing, and refining a curriculum for elementary school children. The three projects I mentioned earlier are units that I will have to make and use in my student teaching - a social studies unit, a literacy unit, and a mathematics/science unit.
It should be interesting.
syllabuses always make things sound more intimidating than they end up being...or so I've found.Post a Comment
hope it is the case this time.
social studies, science...it's been so long. hahaha.
