Call Me Lazy, Call Me Lame: Project 180, Day 70

Well, it’s a week to Christmas. And while I’d like to think that kids’ minds are on learning, they are not. And yes, I know that I should muster the strength to inspire them to keep plugging away, but I won’t. Call me lame. I will wear the hat. My mind’s not on learning, either. So, in the absence of any motivation to stick anyone’s nose to the grindstone, we will instead relax and have fun. We will watch a movie for the next two days as we impatiently wait out the clock for the next 48 hours to get to our holiday break.

Some of my colleagues will be giving tests today and tomorrow. And though I understand their desire to maximize every instructional moment there is, I have a hard time believing that, come sixth period tomorrow, students will be in a learning mindset. And as such, I have a hard time understanding the rationale for giving major tests the day before break, and consequently, so do the kids. It’s okay to let down the education standard we wave each day on occasion. I find the next two days to be such a time. Lazy? Maybe. Honest? Always.

Today’s Trail

Along today’s trail we will…

…begin with Smiles and Frowns.

…watch a movie (TBD).

…end with a Sappy Sy Rhyme.

Happy Monday, all.

Do. Reflect. Do Better.
