High school social studies teacher has a medical emergency so I am called to cover the next day. Arriving in the classroom, there are no plans anywhere in the room and the sub folder does not have emergency sub plans. The office, another social studies teacher, nor the social studies department head are able to provide information, but I was told an attempt would be made to find something for me. Nothing ever came. When the students arrived, I found out they do not use a textbook and they just had a had a section test before the teacher had the emergency. The teacher had not yet let them know what they were going to be studying next. So I asked, what was covered on the last test. The U.S. Supreme Court. Ah ha! That is something I know a little about from my own personal studies. Alright, so we will talk about some of the highlights in the history of the court from its beginning to current events with an emphasis on recent cases. I was able to consume 55 minutes of the 90 minute block period before I ran out of material from the top of my head. Anyone with similar experience? What would you have done?
