I hate that. I always think there has to be a happy median between subjecting adults to think-pair-share and cross-the-line crap versus lecturing for hours without a proper break. I always resent the idea that someone is basically reading content to me when I could simply read it for myself.

I had an admin a long time ago who was notoriously brutal with classroom walk throughs and teacher appraisals. No teaching was ever dynamic or engaging enough for him. Teachers needed to try harder to incorporate newer and more progressive techniques. Then he'd stand up at staff meetings and PD sessions and drone on in a nasal monotone, frequently reading off PowerPoint slides. Apparently he had taught the same way as a Geography and Social Studies teacher before his promotion to AP. He would have failed his own teacher appraisals. Do as I say, not as I do.
