Field Trip and Missing Classes

Ok, I’m going to say it. I’m done with field trips. Not quite because I don’t think they have value but because of the downstream consequences of them. You see, I hate it when students miss class. I think missing a class is generally really bad, worse than not doing an assignment or homework. I can think of 4 different field trips I’ve taken students on. The classic trip is taking physics 11 to PlayLand, along with taking science 8 to playland.
