I've just finished my first double lesson back after half term (2nd week on my second teaching placement). The lessons I taught before half term went well, however my class this morning was an absolute disaster. The lesson was delayed by 20 minutes due to an assembly and issues with logging onto the system. I was then thrown by the delayed start, tried to turn my lesson around content wise to fit the time better, and it just didnt work. I managed to drag it back a bit in the end, but I just lost the track of everything. Some girls were chatting over others and I just didnt seem to have the ability to get through to them, and the class teacher had to take responsibility for managing their behaviour in the end. I had a terrible lesson and feel completely dejected after it, Has anyone else felt this after half term?
