So the other day (I want to say it was two weeks ago), the teacher next to me has resource lab with students that have special needs in certain areas. They're given time to work on certain classes and homework.
And as my students are telling me the password of the week, I have that teacher tell me, "One of my students wants to observe your class today." To which I responded, "Is that ok with you?" And she said it was fine. I told her that if he or she didn't cause problems, they were completely welcome.
So a student comes in, sits down and works on homework. It's one of my rowdier classes (30 or so students). They have a great energy but need a lot of redirection.
And we go through normal class. The students applaud for the things we usually do. We went over the day, date, how they were doing and we interviewed someone. We laughed, we joked, we stayed in Spanish most of the time.
After the class, I asked if the student got any of his homework done or what he thought of class.
He responded with, "That was awesome!"
I heard from the teacher next door that he just hears our class through the wall and it must sound so exciting that he just needed to experience it for himself.
