The Missing Assignment
The lesson plan stated that the students could find their math assignment on the school's website. As the students were filing in, the teacher called to inform me that this class hadn't ever done this before. (It's the third week of school, so things are still getting up and running.)
No problem. I understood. And this was 3rd year high school math. The kiddos should be able to handle it.
Class started. I informed the class that they needed to log onto the school's website and find the teacher's page.
There was no assignment.
The kiddos had no problem finding the school's website, the teacher's page, and their class' page. They showed me. Blank.
But the teacher said she'd posted it.
I frantically clicked around the teacher's page. Under the calculus class I saw an assignment. I clicked on it, and it was the assignment that had been described in the lesson plan. At least, it looked like it.
I figured that must be it...
So, I told this 1st period class to go to 3rd period's assignment. And voila. It was the right assignment for them.
(I got a chance to talk to the teacher at the end of the day. She discovered the error after first period. I assured her that we found it eventually.)
If only things had gone this well for 2nd period...
