Getting a kid on a schedule is not lesson planning.

They just have NO idea! 😂

Yeah no—they have no idea what goes into lesson planning. Having a schedule is not a lesson plan. Keeping your own kid on a schedule is not a lesson plan.

We were given the same directive that we get every year...lesson plans must be “this and that” and must be submitted by 8 am Monday morning. We’re on a hybrid also. Htf are we supposed to do ordinary lesson plans? I actually believe lesson plans as they have us do them we’re a huge waste of time; time better spent grading, find weak spots, working with students creating better assignments etc.

Most of my students are checking in but it’s doubtful they are there the majority of the period as their cameras are broken or they have anxiety and all I can do is ask them to turn on their cameras. I will stop the Zoom call and 3 names are still on the screen and not responding to me.

Not at all. Still doing ALL the lesson planning...

I am, but only because I changed jobs and schools. I am now facilitating all of the distance learning kids who are working through two different web-based curriculum providers. This allows our classroom teachers to ONLY work with the face-to-face kids. Unless of course the schools close again in which case they will then move their content online with their same kids and my kids and I will continue on as if nothing happened.

That’s is a great idea!

I have recorded all day today and yesterday. I keep changing my top so it looks like different days. I volunteered for 2nd grade asynchronous with 2 live open office hours a day. I was still recuperating from back surgery and my principal and I thought it best...plus no one else wanted it...lol. I am allowed to work from home which is a blessing and a curse. I don’t stop working...like ever. People who chose to go to school everyday are having constant computer glitches where they lose sometimes up to 15 mins of instruction. No one realizes the work put in... the little OCD touches we put on everything... and the countless hours spent tracking our students to ensure they are learning.

There is STILL no compass for being a teacher. There is no idea what our work consists of in COVID or in the classroom.

They also think they’re “homeschooling” because they told their kid to sit down and get on the computer 🙄 They have literally no idea.

How do you make snowboarding trips more affordable? First timer and can drive to mammoth/lake tahoe so that saves on airfare, but b/w just the 2.5hr lesson, gear rental, clothing rental, and 3 day lift tickets, that’s $1000 alone. I wanna do it before my body can’t handle an activity like that (I have patellar tendonitis, herniated disc) but man, this trip is costing more than half of what I predict one of our Euro trips next year will cost. No wonder I never went growing up 😔

QQ for any TTP users: what would you recommend as the most accelerated use of the portal? I have my GMAT in about 10 days. I've had access for half a month and I'm through ~20% problems. I've only targeted sections where I felt I needed the most improvement mainly focusing on chapter tests. If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.
