I ended up doing some work today in order to get ready for work tomorrow.
This is not something I normally do as I have lots of free time on Fridays and try to do most of my planning then, but there was an odd confluence of events on Friday. First there was the encounter with the bad student and all the subsequent meetings. Then we recorded a listening, but didn’t have time to edit it.
This wouldn’t be a problem, except that I have three classes in a row starting first period tomorrow. This means I have to either be ready or be willing to throw any crap together and call it a lesson.
Normally, the latter would be enough, but as the co-person in charge of high school second year, it’s my responsibility to make sure everyone has the materials they need to do their jobs.
Therefore, instead of bailing out and playing tanks or something, I edited the listening and then did a worksheet to accompany it.
I then felt justified in being lazy, which isn’t the best way to do things, I suppose, but it was a Sunday.
