This unit taught me about effectively planning class lessons. This is the part of teaching that I am most concerned about, as it is the most teacher-centred part of the lesson. I worried that it would be hard to estimate required times and anticipate potential issues, however this unit has put my mind at ease - learning must happen in a way that both the student and teacher can easily follow along with that way neither one falls behind or is being carried by the other. I have confidence in my lesson planning abilities after this unit.
