I was planning and hosting a birthday party for someone this weekend and had to laugh because the stuff I learned as a teacher was obviously in play. Basically I wrote a 6 page lesson plan for an adult birthday party. It included objectives, materials, procedures and resources. I also wrote an "Agenda" for the party on a big index card. Recently I went to see a Chaplin and the Chaplin smiled and commented that my bringing documentation was something very teacher-like of me. (Don't worry, life is good). I know how we talk to others is affected by our time in the profession and that comes up in threads occasionally. What about actions? Anything teacher-like you've done in your personal life lately?
