This is a comprehensive, rigorous and developmental piece of work, with key points clearly indentified in each of the four sections.This work advocates varied, learner-focussed teaching, which is empathetic, while maintaining clear professional boundaries.The practical implications of sound theory are explored in relation to work in the area of mental health awareness, and concrete examples illustrate the [consistency] of theory and practice.Fluently and concisely written, this work far exceeds the basic requirements for a pass and provides the model of a practitioner who is well aware of the vast range of responsibilities teaching brings without losing sight of the learner at the centre of the process.Excellent.
This work is highly perceptive, highly organised, displays consistent integration of theory with practice and is very well written.The concrete example of your collaborative learning opportunities is fascinating. The roles you establish for group members [must] provide valuable focus but you are right to refer to then being switched as well, otherwise inclusivity can be compromised.You display total ownership of the areas we have explored and supply valuable material, too, from your own experience and research- e.g the “parking board” strategy to ensure learner contributions are not lost, which I have also seen employed most effectively.Excellent: I look forward to your next piece of work!
A clear example of the way in which you embraced the principles and practicalities of both topics was in your exploration of ILPs.These were barely referred to in our sessions but you showed clearly how they can be central to the assessment process in many settings. This was indicative of the approach to the whole task, thinking beyond your current teaching role and ensuring you had “owned” the means of assessing and recording learners’ progress in any teaching context.You also emphasised how assessment of learners [constitutes] assessment of, and for, the teacher and showed how records can be [controlled] to contribute positively to the process.Excellent work.
Not only does this task include a most successful teaching session which earned the most positive feedback, but the rigorous commitment to reflective practice evidenced here is exemplary.The two key development points identified – that of excessive material for the session, and some nervousness during the session – would certainly be accommodated and addressed with more practice, and it is certainly preferable to have too much material than too little!The rigorous lesson plan and detailed justification, the quality of resources and the range of methodology explored to address all learning styles are all done full justice to in a [searching] and most constructive Reflective Learning Journal.Excellent!
