I’m not blogging because I’m not teaching. Not well anyway, which is enough shame to keep me from poking my head up around here. It’s not burnout and it isn’t laziness. Spring break was good to me and I’ve jumped back in with the same workaholic, 07h00-to-00h30 schedule.
My efforts at good planning are going wasted though. I’m making rookie mistakes like overestimating time-on-task, finishing lessons early, and spinning my wheels lamely until the bell rings. I’m under-scaffolding, under-engaging, just plain under-teaching my students. It’s embarrassing, that’s what it is. I’m not sure what’s up or how I’m going to get my mojo back, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen while blogging about it.
