When I got a phonecall from David Muir at school, I thought "what have I done?". Blogging thats what I did, anyway to cut a long story short, David recommended me to Learning Teaching Scotland to write a new article for the website/email bulletin. So I did, and the article is ready for publication. So I have blogging to thank (and David Muir) for making me a published article writer person, which I will be able to include in my personal Portfolio!!!!!!!!! Now, I am heading for a TV documentary!!!!!!!! Would the makers of Teacher Teacher (a documentary following Student Teachers which was on in November) like to do another series following the life of a probation Student??????? I think it is an excellent idea.
My first "crit" is on Tuesday,...and I don't think I have been more prepared for one yet. I just need to remember my timings and not talk for too long. It is not the most exciting of lessons - but it was appropriate for the stage and level of the class. As all my pupils are at different stages I decided do to a lesson which everyone could complete. Here's hoping that the computers are working, because what do you do in computing if the computers don't work??????????
I must start thinking of a back-up plan!!!!!!!
Only 3 more weeks, that's 14 days ( we miss out one friday) till I finish my second placement. TO think...I was dreading my computing placement (and Doing Programming) BUT programming is turning out to be a great subject to teach. The funny thing is that I actually understand it, which I did not have a scoobie doo (clue) when I was studying it last year. I never understood what a Variable was until I had to explain it to the kids!!!!!
