I am taking on four units for the first time ever, while working six days a week (five days a week as a TA, and every Sunday in retail), but despite this I have never felt on top of my uni work like this semester. EDC3100 is a tough gig, but I love it. I really enjoy the blogging component of the course. I haven’t missed a Maths EDX3280 tutorial and despite the horror stories, I’m ready for the ePortfolio bad boy. I have had a solid plan ready for action for a couple of weeks now. The EDX2170 multimodal presentation looks like one of the best assignments in the education degree. I brought home four picture books from school today and the plan is to put this one to bed very early. Finally, EDP4140 Second Language learning and pedagogy. This is possibly my favourite as it relates to my Taiwan teaching. I was asked why I feel this one by a friend this week and it got me thinking, I just feel that the four units I am undertaking are four of the best supported units I’ve taken throughout my degree, but probably equally important is working in a school setting. If I have any advice for an aspiring teacher, it’s become a TA. The network you build, and the resources that become available to you cannot be understated. In a ideal world, every year working as TA should knock a fourth year unit off your degree!
