the lighting of this last candle in the second little red espresso cup is perfect timing, because i've finally spotted the light at the end of the tunnel. oh yes, i am handing in my second literacy assignment this morning. which means that there are only four weeks and three assignments to go:
1. an eight minute panel/interview powerpoint presentation on my philosophy and practice of assessment (oh golly what shall i say? i have the perfect quote but am a bit afraid to use it... *recites* i must play by the rules, i must play by the rules...).
2. a three-day team teaching and evaluation/pedagogical implications 1500 worder on curriculum integration, including NZC (2007) links, and three previously uncited authors all woven within.
3. a big bad test. my first. and it's on running records, which i have done eleventy billion of... twenty years ago... it helps that i totally believe in running records. i *heart* marie clay. so am just needing a wee brush-up on the analysis and future considerations. and i'll also need a count-relator. for all the adding and dividing and times by two.
and then..? i've got tickets for The Rita Angus Road Trip... an ode to my art assignments and a couple of days with my mummy and daddy to celebrate the end of this long and arduous and awakening year.
