Reflection: Flexibility Peer Revision and Polishing a Paper - Section 1: Sub Plans


Just checked my email and my teaching partner said this did not go well. Sigh. Only about half of the students had a completed draft and almost all of them were so confused about what was going on that he and the sub had to punt a little.

I'm not really sure what I need to do to make this right. This is their first big, summative, formal essay for me, so I don't want to leave it without making sure they have the support they need, but I also don't want to reward laziness. I was planning to move forward with our next unit tomorrow, but I think I am going to table that until I've checked in with them and had a little come to Jesus conversation.

The best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry. I really think this lesson would have worked fine if I had been there. Such is life and I'm sure the in long run, all with be fine. I'll just have to be flexible and trust that we can make up time later.
