Since then, I have been thinking. What happens when they go to work? If they can't sit through a 45 minute class, then how will they sit through a 2 -3 hour meeting or client presentation or just an 8 hour work day? ( I recall my first job out of college working in an office. I finished my work too quickly, and I spent my free time writing poems. I was so bored. I remember counting down the hours starting on Monday! But I never expected to have 'fun.' )
I have also been thinking that if the students are allowed to only have fun, then maybe so should we!
Is teaching "fun"? I have spent all weekend writing exams and grading papers and plotting, I mean planning my classes for the week. It is Spring. I look out at families packing cars with picnic gear, and children playing games. I am doing the most boring part of my job: grading and writing exams. But if I only did the fun' part, then what would my classes be like?
