I’ve been guilty, too. When I was teaching, I would often plan a movie for my classes on days I knew I’d be gone. Because you never know what kind of sub you’re going to get.
And so, now that I’m subbing, I’m watching movies. Wednesday, it was the same 40 minutes of The Pursuit of Happyness, five times. Thursday, a TV show called Princess. Last week, it was The Pirates of Silicon Valley.
I don’t know a lot about the classes I’ve been subbing for, and I can’t expect the teacher to trust me with complicated lesson plans.
Still, I’m a little tired of watching movies.
