Know When It's Time To Call It A Day
Today was a good day at school. I was feeling pretty good, my voice held out, and I was able to keep my students engaged with the lesson. But now it is time to go home.
I was going to stay and do some paperwork but after finishing one bit and realizing I had just done all the numbers in the wrong column I realized I had reached the point of diminishing returns and should call it a day.
Today's lesson bridged the Middle Ages to the European Renaissance via The Black Death. We will continue this lesson tomorrow. The BBC has an excellent 50 minute long documentary on this subject which, after a bit of setting the scene leading up to it, engendered considerable comments and conversation with the students. So much so, in fact, that we only got about half-way through the movie in each class.
I love it when a lesson plan goes well. Especially when it goes so well it pushes into a second day.
