The long nightmare of not having hot water ended this morning. The tankless waterheater decided to quit last Friday morning and after a few days of weirdness, it back working again. One positive from it is that I will clean out the attic tomorrow when the rain comes. I don’t even remember what kind of crap I have up there, but I need to clean it out.
My Reading class is heating up. We are almost to the end of I Am Legend. Most of my students have been keenly interested all along. Now that we are approaching the climax, the stragglers are finally interest.
I think it is good for them to read what a recent movie was based on. They have learned a lot and I will help them reflect on that by the end of the term. Hopefully they will look at every movie and book with the same critical eye I have shown them.
My other advanced group is not so ready for finals as I thought. At least I have one more week to get them ready. I brought the recordings of their practice speeches home to listen to this weekend. I have one week to instill confidence in them.
