Reflection: Accountability Applying Sound & Structure (2-day lesson) - Section 4: Getting Down to Business


Wait just a second here, Julia....  You give them an assignment, a few instructions, and then what do you do?  Isn't teaching full of inspirational lessons, conversations, and activities?

Well, sure it is - most days.

However, there are some days where you need to sit at your desk and grade, and your little dumplings need to accomplish a task.  These are two such days.  I'm not saying every day should be a round of instructions followed by seat work, but it does need to happen from time to time.

In my case, this lesson falls during our SBAC testing.  I have students coming and going, starting tests, finishing tests, wandering in during 4th period thinking it's 5th period....  I need to provide an assignment that is self-paced yet still focused on our core standards.

So, today, give them instructions and pull out YOUR seat work.  If you're anything like me, you have a stack of something somewhere that needs your attention!
