Thank Heaven last week is behind us. We survived assessment testing and little instructional time. This next week will feel more normal with a writing assignment and actual teaching.
Of course, last week also gave me a chuckle. An Honors student looked at our text book and asked, “Is this just full of stories?” In an effort to not be sarcastic, I answered, “It also has poems, essays, a play, and part of an epic.” However, some of the things I wanted to say were:
– “No, it has math problems, too.”
– “Of course not, the book merely has disconnected words.”
– “Are you sure you belong in Honors?”
– “No. It is just a heavy weight and part of the President’s fitness plan for the youth of America. Here, you need another book.”
Well, back to teaching!
