This unit talks about organizing and managing a class for effective learning. It goes further to outline the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods of grouping students and sitting arrangements. I have learned how to use my physical presence and voice in a classroom as well as group, organize and manage students depending on the need and activity.As a brand new student of teaching, lesson plans are going to be very important for me going forward. I really liked the simple yet comprehensive example shown in the unit and so I will be using it going forward, adding my own personal tweaks where necessary. I especially like the idea of including a personal aims section so that I can monitor my own progress.
