All Hail the CFA
Today, I gave my English III classes their CFAs. That acronym stands for "Common Formative Assessment." The idea behind it is that I map out what my objectives will be for a particular unit, say, as it was in this case, "figurative language and sound device...

Students, Teacher, Administrators, and Cell Phones: A Study in Consequences

Messed Up Day

A Visit from an Old Enemy
Today my old enemy, depression, came for a visit.  I woke up at the usual time, 5am, and I could tell that I was in for a rough bout of it.  Moving around felt like walking in deep mud, talking felt like a chore, getting dressed felt like working in a low, ...

Why Teachers Leave
Before I write about today's topic, I would like to report on a positive ending to the problem with student "A" who put her head down on the desk and would not remove it.  I was able to get a good phone number for A and made contact with her mother.  We had...

Too often our students are their own worst enemies. Today there were several examples of that attitude and behavior. During 1st hour, the students were doing some silent reading in one of our AP Literature test preparation books.  I wanted them to get some ...
