I’m fed up.
Seriously fed up 😦
I’m trying to do this assignment but I’m making a pigs ear of it.
I don’t know. It’s many, many years since I’ve tried to do this kind of thing. I’m frustrated at my own stupidity.
I’m aware of time just dripping away. I mean, how long should this kind of task take? Three whole days to write a short essay and materials? Five?
I look at the texts and nothing sinks in. Lots of words. Lots of stuff that just seems so obvious it carries no value. Words that just seem like padding. I can’t get to what they’re trying to tell me. My mind just skates over them and takes nothing away.
I look at the assignment and it seems vague and woolly. Is it an essay or a list? I feel like I don’t know the rules and they’re just waiting to pounce to say oh no, isn’t it obvious? You should have done it this way. You’ve failed.
It talks about receptive skills. Well they’re reading and listening. “Identify the receptive skills that could be used during a reading lesson.” Reading and listening. End of story. Does it want sub skills? Why not say that then?
It talks about wanting receptive skills and then wants productive skills as well – in one stage but not all three. Why?
So. Like you see. I’m fed up.
