Re: new schedule for me


Date: Sat Mar 17 2001 - 14:15:23 PST

I have one 6, one 7 and one 8 grade class called the "Magnet" for an
entire year, every day. What a difference it makes in their
development, compared to the two "swing" seventh grades. Yes, I have
them every day for a semester, but they don't really settle down. In
fact, I am teaching one class language arts, letting 8 at a time paint
from a still life. Otherwise material is destroyed, paint spattered
around and other distateful stuff. When the painting group was at work
on Friday, they were oblivious to the obnoxious behavior of the rest of
the class. Heads bent down, intense work. They were in another world. I
have promised the class that everyone will get to paint, but not all at
once, unless their behavior improves. What a shame.
