This is my way of making sure I have every thing I need to go on my 4th prac. I will add to this as needed 🙂
So far I have familiarised myself with the school where I am going. I found the best way to do this was not just to google the school’s name but instead I googled ‘find a school’ this site allowed me to type in the school’s name and then directed me to the school’s directory page where I found the school’s link on the right hand side of the page beside ‘Internet site’.
I have also been to the school and met my mentor who seems very nice. During the meeting we discussed the general requirements of the class (lower achieving class) and what courses I will teach. I found out what time I should be there on Monday the 19th May. We also talked about some of the extra activities that I should attend such as staff meetings held every Friday morning.
