There oughta be a (natural) law
I teach two sections of the same survey, one in the late morning and the other in the early afternoon. The students in my morning survey are generally livelier and more engaged--they may well be smarter, but they're almost certainly more on top of their reading. Usually my morning class goes very well, while my afternoon class is only okay.
BUT: on those days, like today, where my morning class is only so-so, my afternoon class is always great.
Why is this? My lesson plan is exactly the same. Am I subconsciously trying harder? Is my routine more polished after running through it once already?
Or is there some natural law at work here, of which I'm unaware?
