I am not sure if this will show, my other listings have not. In my
Internship my supervising teacher and I worked on a unit together about
the Revoluvtion. I think when I started on mine for my English class at
UCF it was too much. It was partical in that it covered what it needed
to cover, but it lacked a lot. I was the typical boring reading
assignments studetns are familar with. I aimed too high when I wanted
to teach a novel and a play in four or five weeks and have a lot of
creativity. I realized this when I watched my classes in Internship
take three weeks for The Crucible. They didn't just read the play, they
had a variety, and they had other activities to occpy them as well. I
think I realized that we do need a "center piece." Has anyone else
figured out how to cover everything they "need" to cover and still have
been able to have the extras as well? Or do we just need to realize
that we always want to do more than what time allows?
