Emergency Lesson Plans
Posted May 31, 2009on:
I’m almost never out sick. This is a good thing because my emergency lesson plans are, well, they kind of suck. It’s motivation to come to work. The few times I’m out, I either have the sub put on Mythbusters, or I email in a lesson based on our current work.
I would really like to have some better, stand alone emergency plans, but all I’ve come up with is Einstein’s Puzzle. It’s a logic puzzle that takes quite a bit of thinking and time to solve. I give extra credit for getting it right (Einstein puzzle). Just guessing isn’t enough, they have to show that they did the work or they don’t get the extra credit.
I need something else. Maybe I’ll design some review worksheets of conversions or scientific notation, or maybe an SAT II section on Physics. I’m going into my 4th year teaching these courses and that’s the best I’ve been able to do.
I need help. Or an intervention. What do you do?
