This was when I started to panic.
I took a brief look about the room. That's when I looked at the whiteboard. Sure enough, the teacher had written the lesson plans on the whiteboard.
They were really complex. Underneath "To the sub" they said:
- Circle names of students absent on seating chart.
- X any problem students.
- Collect work each period.
Occasionally I get teachers who leave such a bare bones lesson plan. It makes me wonder if they really want me to leave them a note at the end of the day. I do anyway, but I still wonder.
