We (thank goodness! ) are on vacation now.
The moment I return to high-school, it will be “reckoning time”. The whole time left till the end of the year is basically about tests, literature logs to be handed in and grades.
The time when students finally see the results of being physically (or mentally!) absent from the lessons. Some students are quite amazed that it matters.
This time of year reminds of an incredibly apt and wonderful poem by Tom Wayman. I would like to thank Steve Hellmann for introducing me to it.
Wouldn’t YOU like to say such things to a student sometimes?
