I know when my home district switched to ESS, we had to go to an orientation, and they checked to see if your clearances and TB were up to date.

I had a high school class like that last year. But I gave them a chance to get quiet and stop with the sarcastic comments. Why didn't you stop the video, give them a warning about the talking, then...

I wish the truth would come out about SFT. Not in the business of education - in the business of making money at expense of their workers. And they don't have your back. District calls to complain....

THE MAIN PROBLEM is the lesson plan. 90 minutes is too long for one activity. The video should have been for the first 45-50 minutes, when they were more alert. I would then have taken their sheets...

Oh, we should make them as comfortable as possible. Ask them if they need a pillow too and a mini-fan if the room gets too hot. Good grief, schools have gone way overboard in accommodating these...
