I subbed for a teacher today on the final day before Spring break. It was an easy day = 7th grade science. We read about Chameleon adaptations, answered questions and discussed, then watched a Bill Nye video that went along with the reading. Did that for the first four periods. Then came last period. In danced the two most hyper, immature 7th grade boys. And their buddies. So I did what any person interested in not losing sanity would do. I canned the lesson, pulled up the video, showed it, and then (TA-DA!!) showed a second Bill Nye video. The entire class was quiet and engaged. I DID message the teacher and confess my transgression. She texted back that whatever it took was fine with her.

You recognized and averted an incoming train wreck by flipping the switch on the tracks in the nick of time. Good on ya for thinking on your feet, being flexible AND saving your sanity,

Enjoy Spring Break!

It's about saving your own sanity and theirs! No biggie. Why would you say you're a "chicken"? I don't think so.

Well done! You read the situation quickly and adjusted the activity accordingly...as any skilled teacher should.
