In pursuit of higher certification, TMAO of Teaching in the 408 took an all-day health class for teachers. He live-blogged the class in the guise of taking notes, though worried there wouldn’t be enough content to justify taking fake notes.
8:54 I walk in. Where’s the agenda? Where are the objectives?

11:15 I learn that violence, which is unavoidable, is a major health issue.

3:02 Group work ends. My group is assigned meth. We’re supposed to present for 20 minutes. We’re supposed to be creative. We’re supposed to have hand-outs. My group decides to play a game called “Name That Addict.” This is not my idea. I go to the bathroom twice.
The day ends at 4:45.
