Reflecting on Curriculum Design

  • Mia Wotherspoon

Abstract

The lesson I taught yesterday was an absolute disaster. I was unable to reflect on it logically straight away because I was wrought with feelings of failure and inadequacy. The children must have wondered what rock I’d crawled out from under. It was the first lesson of a Year 7 Humanities unit on Ancient China.
