Reflection: Practice Three Identifying Claim and Evidence, Day One of Two - Section 3: Identifying Claim and Evidence Practice


When I was in high school, I remember sub days as being less than rigorous. No teacher = no new work or any work that might require teacher assistance.

With technology in the classroom, this is no longer true. Now I can use videos to leave thorough notes for my students, and, depending on where I am, I can use email to communicate with my students even when I'm not in the classroom. Sub days can be just as rigorous as any other day, and, happily enough, I find that my students rise to the occasion beautifully.
