My plans for total world domination...
I have an interesting group of academically gifted students this year. They enjoy the whole concept of being "renegades." I guess they were assigned to the right teacher, because this whole 'teaching Physical Education' thing is right up my renegade alley.
I am very fortunate that the woman who teaches with me is supporting my response to having to lead exercises. She feels as I do--that if I lose 10 minutes a day from a class period to lead exercises, then over the course of a week, I have lost AN ENTIRE CLASS PERIOD!!! This is ridiculous, as I have a test at the end of a year that gauges whether or not I've taught my students ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS, not how to follow a silly exercise video.
So, I decided to chunk that 50 minutes into two 25 minute blocks. And instead of a lame exercise video, we're learning a production number from "A Chorus Line."
Our goal is to be a singular sensation.
