Question: What do high school students not want to be doing at 6:45am?
Answer: Sitting in a classroom, STARTING their school day!
Yep, since we are on a heat schedule, I get to start teaching advanced algebra at 6:45 in the morning! Yipppeeee!!! Well, seriously, it really has not been so bad. We started this schedule last Thursday and continue it through this week. Once you get used to it, it's not all that awful. The kids are definitely quiet at that time of the day. And.....the good part is that the school day is over at 1:30 in the afternoon, so you really have a good chunk of the day left to do other stuff.
I still think that they will be happy next week though when we go back to "normal" and start an hour later. 7:45am will seem like noon to them!
