More workshop today.
Here's what I always wonder about workshops that are supposed to develop instructors as better teachers: why are they so often poorly done in terms of time management and structuring?
We sat today for two and a half hours solid. No moving around. There was one short five minute starting point where we made individual lists and shared. But other than that, it's mostly been being talked at or shown stuffs on a screen.
I think it's really problematic that the folks who are supposed to teach teachers don't use strategies that don't have me wriggling in my chair after an hour and a half, don't have me wanting to do something else. (When I sit through these things, I totally sympathize with students doing effbee or whatever in boring classes, especially if those classes last all day.)
