After completing my four pages of sub notes, I took off on my unexpected journey, knowing I'd be gone at least three days. This is a huge amount of time in my school and I prayed the kids would keep up.
How did my students do? Well, the jury's still out on that one. So far they've (most of them) have made progress--some. But their targets were higher than that...
I guess when the teacher's away, the students probably do goof around some, no matter how high the quality of sub you have. And mine is excellent!
I'd be interested in knowing your answers. How can I keep students engaged and learning in a class that is taught one-on-one with self-directed students? I'd be curious to see your thoughts!
