Question of the Week -- Unplanned Events

Last week, I wanted to make a video observation of one of my math lessons.  I planned the lesson, and I arranged for someone to operate the camera.  What I didn't plan for was the fire alarm that went off because another class was cooking pancakes and the grill got a little too warm.

I went ahead with the lesson and the video.  My students were frozen and atypically quiet.  I didn't think it went well.  I plan to keep the video, because it is a slice of reality.

When did you have an important lesson that didn't go as planned?
