Reflection of EDC3100

I am feeling a little like Kate who reflects on her journey with EDC3100.  I have been overwhelmed, frustrated but overall I feel I have grown. Did I master everything? No. My mentor on prac told me to keep the learning focused and not to fill my lessons with too much content. I feel that […]

Flowers, bees and ants

I found teaching a two week unit about bees and pollination extremely challenging but what a learning curve.
