I had to film a speech therapy session today at my public school site that focused on core curriculum while also targeting speech goals, which I then would have to present in my seminar Monday night. I kept calling one kid a different name and had set the angle of the video camera off so that half of the group (and me while I was walking around to that part of the horseshoe table) was out of the shot. We smashed two of the 4th grade groups together to make it look like a bigger class for the video, but 3 of the 7 kids weren’t yet on the earthquake chapter I was reviewing with them. We also switched to a different room for a quieter space (we share the room with the resource specialists), and you can see me running out the door because I forgot to grab the ‘good speech’ tokens I dole out, and abandoning the projector 10 minutes in because the tiny board wasn’t large enough to fit the text. Amateur hour!
Thankfully, I can edit down the 30 minute thing to the 5 least-embarrassing minutes to show.
