I would like to announce that loud and clear everyone who cares. Life just gets busy sometimes.
So brief update:
- I've graduated!
- I'm teaching!
- I'm surviving!
- reading Frankenstein with my sophomores, progressing just how you can imagine sophomores appreciating Victorian literature. I've been pretty impressed with some, disheartened by others. The plan is to finish it by Christmas. So, if you have any AWESOME project ideas with Frankenstein, send them my way.
- just finished a WWI poetry unit with my juniors. They were pretty good about. Next up, short stories and the Roaring Twenties!
- American Imperialism with my U.S. history kids. It's been really fun to coincide my junior English and History classes. We investigated different views of Imperialism through poetry. BOOM! Cross-curricular awesome-ness.
- Seniors...boy. Seniors are hard. I remember being DONE with school. And I can only imagine that it's going to get worse as the year goes by. So...stick around for them.
Update: This is the 200th post! Wowza, folks! I'm prolific!
