I have marked about 40% of everyone’s ASS#1 Step 1.

Here is your ASS#1 Step 1 General Feedback. I expect to have everyone’s ASS#1 Step 1 marked by Monday next week.

It is so interesting reading what everyone has to say. There are a wide range of responses and opinions about the various key concepts in the reading; and also a range of responses to the requirements of our unit.

Many people are excited to be studying with us this term. And some are finding the adjustments to learning for understanding (rather than simply ‘rote learning’) to be challenging and rather daunting; while others are quickly adjusting and finding it enjoyable and interesting. And for those who find it a particular struggle to make this adjustment, I am very happy to support you and assist you where I can.

And it is great to see people’s developing understanding about some of the key concepts we are studying this term.

We are now in Week 2. We will be looking at ‘A Way of Viewing Business’ and ‘Accounting Rules’ as we explore further what accounting is exactly. We will also be reflecting a little bit more on learning, as we consider what everyone said in our Pre-Unit Survey about what is learning? And we will be heading into ASS#1 Step 3 as we set up our company’s spreadsheet and also make sure we have our blogs off and running.

And there is lots happening on our unit Facebook page and on PeerWise each day.
