Stage 2: Boredom- How old is this Powerpoint presentation? I’m pretty sure she has it saved on a floppy disc. It’s got to be close to lunch. Nope. 8:30. I’ve been here thirty minutes. This presenter is magical. She has the ability to make time stand still.
Stage 3: Hostility- How many acronyms and buzz words can one person spew in the span of an hour? Enough to make one hour feel like SEVEN, that’s for damn sure. I swear to all that is holy if she says “rigor” one more time I’m going to punch her face.
Stage 4: Loopiness- If she dyed her hair green she’d look like a human Chia pet. Ch-ch-ch-chia!
Stage 5: Sleep- I’m just gonna rest my eyes for a minute. Just for a minnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn….
Stage 6: Feedback- Organization – well, she wasn’t unorganized, I guess I have to give her a 5 out of 5 on that one. Clearly stated goals – Well, she stated her goals, I guess that’s another 5, Provided adequate breaks – Another 5. Where the hell is the “Bored the crap out of me” scale? They’ve designed this rubric to make anyone look good. Comments: Okay, here we go. Be civil, use my teacher words. “The speaker would benefit from exercising more rigor in order to present twenty-first century skills with a growth mindset.” There. That makes no sense whatsoever, just like her presentation.
