That is okay. – You might incorporate what you have learned since about teaching and learning and working in a school – You might contrast the ideal presentation of education you have found in books, lectures etc. with the real presentation in your experience – You might select an author or two depending on what you have read and explain what you found attractive about the author you are presenting and what ideas in particular you would like to agree with or disagree with and why. – You might conclude by incorporating these elements into your own philosophy in the light of your reflections on your experience and your reading.
