2010 - Back into it the swing of it.


The mystery tour was held The Boulevard. The morning consisted of PD. This is a PDF outline of the instructional Model called E5 which it seems the Department is introducing. It reminds me of how we teach VET subjects, such as Multimedia and the photography classes at PIC. The model has 5 Domains: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate. Each Domain then has a set of capabilities then, for progressive level of skill. I found the discussion some what useful as it does seem to be a good way to discuss and describe particular parts of practice.

After lunch, and I must say the food was very good, a few brave souls headed out, onto the golf greens to embarrass themselves for the greater good. Led by our courageous PE teacher Rick, we all preceded to bash the golf balls in every direction. It was good fun, expect for the small amount of sunburn I realized I had later on that evening.
