I have actually heard many things about EDM 310. Mainly that the course load is large. A lot of assignments and projects. All of my friends that have taken it and told me about their experiences, said that they made an A though. Basically, they explained to me that they thought it was a lot of work, but it took time to get used to and they learned a lot from this class in the end.
My only real fear is that I might forget an assignment or do an assignment wrong. Although, I normally have these fears in any class I take. EDM 310 is beginning to remind me of a computer class I had to take my senior year of high school. It wasn't necessarily hard, but it was a lot of meticulous work. The same goes for a computer class I took at Faulkner, a lot of meticulous steps and work.
In EDM 310, I believe the most difficult thing for me will be keeping up with the assignments. This normally goes for any student though. Like most people, I go to college and have 15 hours. I also have a job after school, plus plenty of other outside activities that I participate in. I think the best way for me to address this worry, is to keep a list. I need to make a list of all of the assignments myself, that will help me go step by step and get everything done on time. For some odd reason, whenever teachers give me class assignment schedules I can never understand it as well as I could my own writing. Is that normal?
My question now is, how could I use this in an elementary school environment? I am positive I will learn this throughout the semester, but my guess is that I could use blogs for language arts purposes. This can be used for kids to write their thoughts and dreams. Even better, a method to remind them that they CAN achieve their dreams. Either way, I am positive that I will learn all that I need to know in EDM 310.
