When I have a sub, my students (HS) also usually keep working on whatever
they have in progress. I give them the choice between that and a video
before I leave.
One day last year, I got held up by the principal in the office after lunch
and was not in my building, much less my classroom, when my last class
started...in fact, I was about 20 minutes late even getting to my classroom.
I could just see something terrible happening...but when I walked in the
room, I found that one of the students had taken the roll and turned the
sheets in...everyone had their work out and were quietly working away. I
felt very "unneeded at the moment".... I got something out and started
working on it myself very quietly...they didn't need me that day...hee hee!
Bet this wouldn't work in all my classes...in fact, hmmmm, wonder what kind
of classes I'll have THIS year.
Guess I'll soon be finding out...
