Sitting next to teachers doing some planning at a coffee shop…

When did teaching become so boring? Right now, I’m writing a book chapter for a social studies methods text. Working on the part about having schools build vegetable gardens. We’re planning side by side, oddly enough. But man, what they’re doing is so freaking boring that I might want to kill myself right now. I’m hearing PowerPoints and handouts. Oh, and a little task analysis thrown in there. Brilliant!
