Two-week Practicum: Share your thoughts & experiences!

Hi everyone!

This is a place to share your thoughts and experiences from the two-week practicum. What lessons, games, and activities did you try out? What  challenges did you face? How did you overcome them, and how do you plan to deal with them in the upcoming school-visits and extended practicum? What were the highlights of your time in your school? Were there any great resources you found and used that you would like to share?

Share your thoughts as a comment below, and don’t forget to also contribute by asking others questions on their experiences, or giving feedback if asked! Collaboration is an excellent tool for teachers, so let’s make the most of this fantastic forum we have for it!
