I thought I would take this last opportunity before the course ends to reflect on my experience in this course.
This was a heavy course and with it being my first ever course of this type I was overwhelmed from the first day. After just finishing school I found it very difficult to manage my time and finish all that was expected from us (especially with the gorgeous weather we have been having). I enjoyed some assignments better than others and I wish I would have had more time to focus on them.
Although there was a lot of work, I do appreciate all the resources that were presented. These were all great tools that should be used in the classroom and I would enhance them a great deal.
My favourite part would have to be the Assignment 6 where we were to send our work to other people and have them give feedback. The timing aspect was difficult because everyone was on different paces, but I love receiving feedback and am open to any suggestions that can be given. This is a tool that should also be brought to the classroom because too often school becomes a competition instead of a safe working environment. Now, some competition is always welcomed because it encourages learning but it can also turn students off to learning (in math especially).
Overall, it was a pleasure sharing this experience with all of you and maybe we will meet in our future teaching careers!
