Lots of excellent practical tools but assumed there would be a more senior secondary focus. Very experienced presenter but content not as foccused on seniors, only really juniors.

Information overload but good stuff given/broken down. The discussion promoted was excellent and I felt validated in my teaching practice when contributing ideas.

Interesting course – some strong assignments/tasks for classes. The focus would be more on how to differentiate and engage lower ability/gifted students.

I enjoyed the practical side of things because it allowed me to see how I could apply it in my classroom. I also love the creative strategies I could embed in my everyday classroom.

Content was really practical and provided not only excellent resources but stimulus and inspiration for the creation of my own activities. I liked that you got us to get up and actually do them.

The addition of how to breakdown and differentiate specific writing tasks would be a useful add in. As would source background on the pedagogy/studies that underpins this work.

I think the first half was better as we discussed more on differentiation but as a new teacher I enjoyed learning about the different activities to incorporate into the classroom.
