Bloggin’ away Photo by Rick Diana Frances Spencer was born into British aristocracy at Park House, Sandringham in Norfolk, England on 1st July 1961. I think that I first knew about her when I was only a child and I´m pretty sure that almost everybody has heard of Lady Di for her charity work, public scandals or for the media pressure around her fashionable image. But the truth is that she was the first British citizen to marry an heir to the British throne in almost 300 years. Their sons, Princess William and Harry are second and third in line to the throne of the United Kingdom. When Diana was 16, she met Prince Charles for the first time when he was dating her eldest sister, Lady Sarah. They soon began to have big problems like Charles’ long standing affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, Diana´s suicide attempts and bulimia. Among the charities she worked with, were homeless, youth, drug addicts and elderly organizations.

Goals and Objectives Before you do anything, you’ll need to focus your objective(s) for the class. After collaborating on shared goals with the faculty member, formulate your learning outcomes for the class so that you can keep them in mind as you plan and teach the class. Well thought out learning outcomes will give structure to the discussion, activities and assessment of the class. Learning outcomes are statements that specify what learners will know or be able to do as a result of a learning activity. Outcomes are usually expressed as knowledge, skills, or attitudes. (1) The specified action by the learners must be observable The ultimate test when writing a learning outcome is whether or not the action taken by the participants can be assessed. Examples: Worse: Students will understand how to use the Boolean operators AND and OR. Demonstration is a behavior that can be assessed. Worse: Teach students to search the library catalog. Focus on the students, not yourself as the instructor. Adapted from here
