A Disaster – ‘Working’ on Our Assessment Task 7C Egypt

  • Kylie Poppins


During placement I taught a Year 7 Humanities class that had me feeling as though I was teetering on the edge of ineptitude. Right from the outset I was concerned. The class had been given an assignment sheet from which they were to choose a topic (one of six on the sheet), which they would then complete an essay on. One lesson was allocated to complete the task with any remaining work to be done at home.
