The teacher librarian at my school provided me with a very useful resource – SCAN magazine. (I am now a subscriber). I found the articles and research studies to be extremely helpful in completing the first assignment. I find the articles to be clear and informative – I also subsribe to English teaching magazines (in my current role) and sometimes find these magazines to be overly verbose and lacking in practical application, thus the SCAN magazine was a pleasant surprise for me.
One last reflection – reference as you go! Although a fairly administrative reflection, I learnt this the hard way and could have saved myself a lot of time.
