    28th November 2012

    Every once in awhile…

    …it’s good to have those days where I feel like I’m good at my job, like my classroom isn’t THE least orderly classroom in the world, and that my students are actually starting to enjoy reading.

    If you want to read what we started reading today, that had 90% of my students mesmerized, check out Standing Up: Davien’s Story at the LA Times online edition. It’s a powerful story of a young man in the LA area who was the victim of a gang-related-drive-by – paralyzed by a bullet – and the neighborhood problems that led to that act of violence.

    We watched the short video as an introduction and then read Part 1 today. We’ll read Part 2 next week.
