Re:Sub teaching art. Having subbed in art K-12 in a large district,
for quite some time, I take exception to the complaint about subs not
following the lesson plans. Survival caused me to bring my own and
sue them freely when
A. the plans left were incoherent
B. The plans left for me did not include the materials needed to
execute them, ie. Video tapes, paints, reproductions, examples, that
were specifically called for in the plans
C. The lesson plan provided would last only about 10 minutes leaving
me with 50 minutes of time to kill with Bored students.
D. The lesson left was so boring that the regular teacher would have
never used it.
E. Lesson books, seating charts, grade books, supplies were no where
to be found, even after a lengthy search with the help of the
building principal.

Lighten up on your subs. Subbing for art, along with P.E. and music
are the least popular assignments available.
