Hi there, I'm Kait!
Recently finished my student teaching in Detroit Public Schools. I will be teaching fourth grade at a PBL school in the fall!
I think it would have been more effective (maybe) if the hour of teaching had been in the morning. I’m not sure though.
Yeah…I’m not sure either. As I said, I really don’t know how much control my CT had over the set-up of the day. Thinking back to days like Halloween, the morning was just full of anxiousness when they knew something was going to happen later in the day. They were too excited to focus then as well. I guess maybe it just comes down to doing what you can and accepting the chaos.
