I liked this blog because its presents some interesting points in a fun way. I agree that time needs to be used effectively… the only problem I have with time is that it is finite (unless I am able to speed up to almost the speed of light, which I can’t) which means out perceptions on the passage of time are secondary to how much time we have left. Eight weeks is eight weeks… help… panic… but maybe the panic is more about us than them! Great post… liked the reference to Floyd!
They say time flies when you’re having fun. I’m not convinced. I think time just flies.
Here we all are again, limbering up for the exam season. Another year, counting down our lessons or days left until the examinations, trying to inject some sense of urgency into our pupils while walking the fine line between giving necessary support, keeping everyone motivated or positive yet applying enough pressure for pupils to take responsibility.
As teachers, during term time our lives are dominated by timetables and routines that are indifferently monitored by the school bell or stroke of the clock hand, mechanically reminding everyone to move on to the next thing. The build up to the exams always makes me think about time…..probably because there never seems to be enough hours in the day and that it seems to be moving at an incredible pace. It seems Earth increased its rotation.
