Reflection: Flexibility The Costs and Benefits of Imperialism: Primary Source Review (Day 2 of 3) - Section 1: Registration Day


Turns out registration took the whole period for each half. God bless my teaching partner who had to give up all of his instructional time for this process today.

The strange thing about not knowing how long it was going to take to register is that I had to moderate how much time each activity was going to take without knowing how much time we actually had. I guess this is one of the greatest challenges of teaching--knowing how to punt with lesson plans when unexpected interruptions (both bad and good) break up the day.
