Why I'm my own worst enemy.
Last Tuesday before break I had about enough. My students were as whiny and helpless as possible. The board discussions were going nowhere. The kids were not engaged at all! By 5th hour I had enough. I was tired of fighting the battle. I got upset and told them that I was done with it. If they were going to just waste time I had better things to do. I left the circle and went and sat down at my desk. After I left, a couple kids took charge and the next thing I knew most of the kids were engaged and the students were racing through the whiteboards! I am the problem! Lesson learned!
