Eighth grade English. I was covering for a special ed teacher who co-teaches with two different general ed teachers. But, all the English teachers plan their lessons together, so all the eighth grade English classes (and the other grades as well) are doing the same thing on the same day.
I co-taught with two different teachers, but both of them did the same lesson.
It was day one of their Holocaust unit.
The largest component of this unit is the reading of The Diary of Anne Frank. But before they get to the literature, they do some preliminary work.
The way their history classes are structured, they don't learn anything about World War II until tenth grade. While some of them might have picked up some knowledge from various media and such, most of them don't know anything at all.
So, day one was all about some background info on WWII.
We watched a short video that gave a bare bones overview of the war. And then they had questions to answer.
Sixth period. Ms. W was doing the questions with the kiddos. I had the document up on my other computer (yes, I have two computers) so I could follow along. As she typed in an answer, I replicated it in the chat so those students who had a hard time reading it as a presented doc on the screen could see it.
Then suddenly, the doc gave a warning message saying I no longer had access to it.
I tried to refresh the screen, and all of the classes for the day in Google Classroom were gone. I had been removed.
We still had ten minutes in class.
When we subs are added to a class for the day, we have teacher access. But we don't need to retain teacher access for classes after our day in the class. Depending on the school, it may take a day to get removed, or I might remove myself.
This was the first time I got removed while in class.
I was still in the meet, so I was able to get the info for the questions from what the other teacher presented. The students didn't notice.
I know some days I'm anxious to get done with class. Now I know that someone is more anxious than me.
