Hi all, I'm thinking forward to September when I begin my first ever teaching placement.... I will have completed 3 full weeks in university by then so when should I expect to take my first lesson? Will it be on my first day of placement? Will I get to observe for a lesson/day/week before I am let loose with my own plans? Will I be backed up by a teacher if I flake or will I have to simply take it all on the chin?? I realise that all placements will be different but can you tell me what structure your first placement took? I'm a planner and at the moment have no idea what to expect so would love to get some sort of idea of what to expect in my head!
