Things to Make You Bang Your Head (and not in the good way)

Signed on for a mini-grant with another teacher. $2,500 is not much money, but it's not nothing, either. We were tasked to create some lesson plans around mental health integration in our respective content-areas.

And when we get the particulars they wanted a full year curriculum map, multiple units with detailed lesson plans, PowerPoints & handouts etc. Essentially about 5 times what the grant would actually cover.

Seriously, it's a grant offered by people who think anybody can just whip up solid curriculum in a couple hours. To which I say: If it was so effing easy and took so little time, why did you have to hire out for it in the first place? Couldn't your office clerk have done it?


Grrrrr!


Good news is that I have a bunch of lessons ready to go for next year when I teach Senior English for the first time. :-)
