As I am sitting in class after having handed my draft Unit Plan up, my tutor starts discussing forms of assessment - and is completely and totally disparaging about the use of Portfolios. Guess what assessment strategy Miss Loz has employed in her Unit Plan? Yes, you guessed correctly.
Great. Just great. Greatness.
It isn't my only assessment strategy, but it's there. And she also goes on to talk about the Food Pyramid and how teachers use the Food Pyramid and students never come away understanding it the way they should. I can feel my eye twitching.
I'm going to go crawl into my hole in the wall now.
