this week it's my turn at Unicorn Bell. I'm discussing weekly bloghops you may be unfamiliar with. I'd love it if you'd stop by and say hi.
There was a lesson plan. The 7th graders were going to watch videos. It was a Friday, so a completely reasonable assignment.
The equipment was there. I logged into the computer. (It's all done via computer and projected onto a screen nowadays.) And then I went looking for the videos.
They weren't there.
I didn't panic. I figured someone would be by to help me out. Usually, when a teacher hasn't left something, it's because she's contacted a teaching buddy who will come by and have the thing I need.
Class started, and... Nothing. Um...
The class informed me that the teacher usually found her videos via YouTube. I searched... Again, nothing.
So, I made do. We played the game. And things went pretty well. (For the record, their team names were: #SquadGoals, The Ipliers, The Cactus, and Team Alpha. The Cactus killed the competition.)
I stood at the door during the passing period before 4th period. One of the other science teachers happened by. She took one look at me... Oh, the look of horror on her face. She explained. She had forgotten to come by. The teacher had asked her to come by and get things set up for me.
Well, that explains it.
