I have to choose my elective subject for next semester, and I'm having trouble deciding between:
A) Foundations of Mathematics Teaching
B) Australian Indigenous Education
"A" will qualify me to teach maths to a Year 9 level, which is probably good for my career. But it'd be a lot of work. And I'm not sure if I even want to be qualified to teach maths in case I get given a whole bunch of maths classes to teach. On the other hand, I think I would enjoy teaching low level maths on some level. But like I said... a lot of work.
"B" seems interesting enough, and the assessment is easier. But I'm not sure if I want to move into rural areas to teach, no matter how much dough the government offers, so I'm not sure how professionally useful this particular elective is going to be. Also, I have the feeling that this subject might be one of those ones that I've already covered in-depth in my Arts degree, and this'll just skip the surface of it and make me go -.-. But like I said... easy assessment.
Anyway, I can't decide. Choose for me.
