Practicum and didactic units

Before the Easter break I also finished my teacher training practicals.  I have to say the whole experience was great and my tutor was a very generous person.  I learned a great deal and was able to use my experiences at the school to help me improve my interaction with my students at “my little English class”.  I am now very busy preparing the didactic units that I am required to do for the bilingual course that I am doing at the university.  I’m getting there even though the learning curve has been steep.


Teaching experience

I am required to do teacher training practicals at a local school as part of the course that I am doing at the University of Salamanca.  The course is called “Título propio: Especialista en docencia en programas bilingües en lengua inglesa en educación infantil, primaria y secundaria” or “Specialist in bilingual teaching programs in the English language in infant, primary and secondary eductation”.

Today was a really nice day at the school.  My tutor allowed me to teach his second grade science class about reptiles.  We had fun and it seemed that the children enjoyed the lesson.  We used a fun video from Youtube about reptiles that caused quite a reaction from the students.
