I am starting a PGCE in september for Secondary English. I currently work a 4 day week and have a lot of holiday to take so I was going to spend time preparing for my course. I have read threads that say spend time with family and get R&R but I already do this (lucky me!) so I want to get some preparation in before the course begins. Can anyone recommend things that I should concentrate on? Reading the books on the curriculum? Spending time brushing up on grammar etc or reading books on becomming a teacher. This is what I think I should do but could anyone point me in the direction of what would be MORE useful to do in the next 5 months? Thank you! Elimay.
