I think we have some excellent conversation going on, and I hope you will all read the final post and comment from last week. That post and comment leads me to this week's reflective question for you. "What was the situation that caused me the greatest anxiety or distress this past week - the kind of situation that I kept replaying in my mind as I was dropping off to sleep, or caused me to say to myself, I don't want to go through this again for a while?"
My situation was that I caught a student straddling another student in an edit bay when they were supposed to be working on the broadcast for the week. This happened while we were in our online class for NTI. I immediately pulled them into my office separately and had a stern discussion with them both. The girl involved was an anchor who is a straight A student who I put on suspension from Eagle TV for a week but had to participate in the production aspect anyway. The guy was an advanced student who i banned from my classroom for a week as well and I called their parents. It seems to have worked because they both love the subject i teach so much. But having to keep students from fornicating is a task I really dread having to deal with.
