Quick, short and sweet post today. I have to teach a class next week as part of my residency, and write a paper for another subject, so I’m hectically busy. But I really love planning classes, choosing texts, activities, and wondering how it will all clash and merge with the added input of my fellow classmates who in this case are also the students I will be teaching. It’s so much fun, and we’re such a great group.
We had a wonderful class today where we sat on the floor, closed our eyes and listened to one of the girls tell us a story, or rather, act it out. It felt amazing, and then we discussed ways to teach literature to children and young teenagers, and how to teach other teachers to teach it. The general conclusion was that Shrek rocks. And he does, big time. I love Fiona :).
These are some shots that I took last week; now that I’m done with Saturday sunset shots I’m finally getting to edit and post them. All textures downloaded from Shadowhouse Creations, as usual. I posted different post-processing versions of a couple of shots again, because I’m terribly indecisive and can never pick which one I like best. Do tell me if repetition is boring, I’ll force myself to make up my mind.
I’m feeling rather dead beat, and my eyelids are dropping as I write, but at the same time I’m bursting with energy and enthusiasm. The universe should reward the few wonderful teachers I encountered during my college years for creating such rich learning environments and guiding us to become critical and creative teachers.
