I am creating a deliberately lecture-intense lesson plan for my Government class tomorrow. Followed by an assignment to write a very long research paper. Why?
a. We've played all the fun "learning activity games" and it resulted in chaos.
b. We've watched both documentaries and feature films and it resulted in chaos.
c. We've made attempts at both group and partner activities, and it was chaotic.
d.. We had a lovely and interesting guest speaker come with an hour's worth of visual aids and demonstrations, and the class was not only disrespectful, but as usual, it resulted in chaos.
e. I have given them class time to finish all of their classwork, and instead of using it wisely, it resulted in, wait for it, chaos. And a significant drop in the class average.
So. Lecture. And homework. And a very annoyed student teacher cackling in the back of the class. Bwahahahaha.
