Well, I am sharing this as I am shocked and I don’t know who else has ever experienced this but I have never failed an assignment. I have maintained a B grade or higher throughout my uni studies. So, you see I am absolutely gutted. It means I have completely misunderstood the whole of the learning path. Or is it that the learning path was not clear enough? Or was it that I didn’t ask the right qualifying questions to know I was doing the right thing. Then, of course there’s the whole rushed feeling to this course and where does one find the time to go over the work again? My lesson plan did not have sufficient ICT in it but my understanding was that it only had to have ‘some’. Problem one. And a big problem because it has caused a snowball effect. The next problem is that for all the work I have put in understanding objectives, standards, elaborations, etc. was not to be included because the lesson plan itself was not detailed enough. I wasn’t aware that it had to be a full-blown, detailed lesson plan like I’d create for use in a classroom.
Well there you go. Assignment two is all ready to go and now I fear that that’s not up to par either. Self doubt has come to visit. Meanwhile, the other subject I am doing, that I thought I didn’t quite understand, I blitzed. I will be away, taking a bath in self-pity, soaking in the negativity, and shrivelling up.
