RSCDS teaching certificate – the first step is done
Posted by Alexandre Rafalovitch on April 3, 2006
I have the news and it is good. I have passed my Teaching Certificate (Part 1 Unit 1). In a retrospect, the flashcards themselves did not help much, but the process of putting descriptions into the flashcards did. So, it was indirectly helpful after all.
My weekest point was marked to be the description of positioning and formations. Not surprising, considering that they are described in a text form, but to understand them one has to imagine them visually. But maybe the technology could come to the rescue there. We shall see.
The next stage is Part 2 and 3. This involves actually teaching dances and learning to
do crowd control keep dancers' attention. I am sure that will be fun to practice (eventually).
Until then, I am still just another teacher-wannabe.
