After a day covering a completely different class, I was asked to cover a 6th period in the "functional academy". These are the really special ed. classes.
It was the last day of the week (Thursday, but they had Friday off) and the last period of the day. This is the time when the classes relax.
So, I was not shocked to walk in to find them all riveted to a movie. I sat down, got comfortable, and enjoyed the end along with them. But that only took half the period. Then it was time for them to dance.
There is this video game called Just Dance. And apparently, people have posted gameplay videos to YouTube. I was given the task of putting various videos up for them to dance along to. (The aides explained what I needed to search out.)
I found the videos. They stood up and attempted to dance along with the moves demonstrated on screen. It took me a bit to figure out how to search and such, and once I did, they called out requests. Their final request of the day: "YMCA"...
(If you want to play along, fast forward to about 30 seconds where the gameplay starts.)
Some classes are easier than others.
