After reading Talitha’s blog post titled ‘Whilst Creating A#2’ it has become apparent that I am not alone in the feeling that the hardest part of assignment 2 is stage 3. I thought I was doing really well with the assignment until I stumbled across stage 3 and that’s when I really hit a road block and assignment 2 started to take a lot longer then it had been. While I was working through stage 1 and 2 I felt like I was getting through assignment 2 at quite a good pace. Developing learning experiences for a unit plan has been quite a challenging task for me because I am so used to completing detailed lesson plans. Funnily enough the picture at the top of this post is quite fitting I believe, as it represents how it has been for me while working through stage 3 of assignment 2.
All I can say is thank goodness for the learning paths on the EDC3100 StudyDesk. These have been my saviour throughout stage 3 of assignment 2 and have really helped me to finally understand what is required of us in stage 3. The sample unit plans have also been fantastic and in particular the year 12 legal studies unit plan has helped me immensely. This is because I have mainly used this unit plan, as a guide to what is required of us.
While writing this post I found a website that gives a detailed guide to unit and lesson planning. You can check it out here. As I finish this post I only hope that everyone gets through assignment 2 with little stress and feeling quite confident with what they are handing in. Good luck with assignment 2 everyone and good luck with the rest of the semester.
