After submitting Assignment 1 I have been better able to engage with this weeks learning path which is all about the beginning steps for Assignment 2. The Assignment requires us to create a unit plan in which we must select 2 content descriptors, one which states constructing knowledge and one which demonstrates transforming knowledge. I’ll admit that even looking straight at definitions for these two terms, I still have trouble distinguishing between the two. A great resource to help us understand this is one we have been introduced to many times throughout our education degrees…. Blooms taxonomy!
I am still really enjoying all the new resources I am finding through reading other students blogs! I particularly love the sharing from people who currently work in the classroom environment as either Teachers aides or similar. Tim’s blog shared some interesting insights on the idea of reward systems in the classroom, definitely got me thinking!
Until next blog…
