Re: am i a terrible teacher?


Date: Sun Oct 21 2001 - 18:02:40 PDT

    My experience has shown that relating to the Sept. 11 horrible events,
most students at the high school level would rather not deal with these
issues which are so huge and difficult even for us adults to deal with. Kids
want to put it out of their minds when they get to art class, they (we) see
so much of it and hear it constantly on the news and radio all the time. Six
days may have been too long for the kids to focus on. That's a long time in
their time frame to spend on pain, terror and present danger. Many of the
other teachers are dealing with it already in their classes (social studies,
history, etc.) Perhaps your kids were burnt out on it as a subject.
