In a Fast, Furious, Frenzy of Downsizing My Lesson Plans

I just checked my plan for the remainder of the year, and it's a little like trying to pack an elephant into a cocktail purse - it ain't gonna happen.

I have 2 1/2 weeks until the End of Course Test in Physical Science.  In that time, I have to include:

  • The elements
  • Organic compounds
  • Solutions
  • Chemical Reactions, and
  • Acids, bases, and salts
The kids are entering their slo-mo mode (summertime speed in the South, no hurryin').  Knowing the level of difficulty of the test, I'm feeling frantic (I'm obviously in an F mood).  I'm not expecting any answers, just feel like expressing my concern.

I just finished entering the interim grades, tonight I have to finish my last assignment for the online class I'm taking, and, when I've recovered from those, I have to have a nervous breakdown start modifying the plan.
