GTPA Lesson Plan

Hello fabulous Earthlings ❤ ❤ ❤

I am currently completing my fourth (and final) student teacher placement. Part of this final professional experience is the completion of our GTPA (Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment) – a gruelling 5000 word assignment which is basically a compilation of everything we have learnt over the last 4 years.

To support our claims within the GTPA we need to provide evidence, such as lesson plans, that demonstrate our ability to align curriculum, pedagogy, legislation, policy and theory. To make this entire process a little easier on myself I developed this lesson plan template… gtpa_lesson plan_template ❤

The entire plan is VERY EXPLICIT and I would not recommend using it UNLESS you are completing the GTPA yourself. On a regular day-to-day basis there is just TOO MUCH there, and as a teacher you would not have anywhere near enough time for that..

The post lesson reflection section has a total of 50 potential questions, explicitly linked to the sections of the QCT Evidence Guide to help when putting together the final assessment piece. It was never my intention to answer every single one of those reflection questions following each lesson, I would simply pick and choose the ones I felt related the most and use those as the basis of my reflection.

Do you have a different method of collecting lesson plan data during student teaching? I would love to hear what you’re doing! My methods are constantly changing and evolving as I learn more about the practice of teaching so I am always interested to find out what other people are up to ❤

Have a blessed week!

The Student Teacher Diaries Ep 4

Hi Lovelies!!!

So my life has been full on for the last couple of weeks – I’ve barely had time for anything which I why I didn’t ‘t upload a blog last week 😦

But I’m making up for it this week !!! With two weeks worth of footage all lovingly combined into one episode 🙂

It is a little long , so it’s probably a good idea to make yourself a cup of tea before watching ❤

Have a beautiful week everybody ! ❤ ❤ ❤

Histograms and Stem-and-Leaf plots

Good Morning Everyone!!!

So I have finally finished my 3rd year professional experience and it was amazing! I had the best time.

In my last week I put a lot of effort into the resources I was making and this is one of my favourites!! I was finding it really hard to source a good histogram / stem-and-leaf plot activity for my junior math classes – so I took a beat and made my own.

I hope you find it as useful as I did!

A whole lot of Maths <3

 

Afternote: Originally when I published this post I made an error in the “vector calculus” summary. I wrote divergence as du/dx, du/dy, du/dz —- this should actually by du/dx, dv/dy, dw/dz — the error has been fixed but if you downloaded these notes any earlier than 3rd May 2017 there is a chance that you downloaded the version with the error! Sorry guys !

Basic Integration

The more topics I cover the more important a good knowledge of  the basic rules of integration becomes. If you’re like me you would have covered these rules once in first year and then by the time you need to use them seriously your mind has  already gone a little bit fuzzy.

So as a means of revision I did up this nifty little summary of the basic rules of integration 🙂

One Dimension Motion

Hello lovely humans 🙂

So despite the crazy cyclonic weather we are having in North Queensland at the moment I still managed to pump out this summary. It is the biggest one I’ve had to do to date and the topics covered are definitely icky .. so if you’re having any dramas or if you need clarification leave me a line in the comments and I’ll see what I can do 🙂

Enjoy ❤ ❤ ❤

Expansion and Factorisation

Helllloooooo everyone 🙂

So this summary is all about expansion and factorisation. I’ve included the identities for both binomials and cubics and hopefully within the next week or so I will have found the time to do up a whole other summary surrounding polynomial manipulation.

Hope you find this useful 🙂 Happy Studying ❤
