So many of us have never taught Society and Culture. I hope they can give more time to research.

A very useful course for new teachers. Great presenter- having an experienced teacher with practical tips and advice are excellent. Having resources already emailed from TTA before the day would be useful.

The course gave an awesome basic look at the requirements and structure of the course. Sometimes the pace of the course was slowed down by questions. It would be good to have an example of a PIP and have a break down of the important components.
