I've been called that before.
Now I think I wear it a bit like a badge of honor.
Yep, I'm that crazy English teacher your children warned you about. I am always doing some kind of project with one or another of my classes.
My junior English III class got to experience this first hand. Or should I say hands on?
We had just finished reading one of my favorite short stories from their textbook: Outcasts of Poker Flat. And one of my favorite activities to do with this story is to experience life from the viewpoint of an outcast. This meant going outside (gasp) and walking around in the sunshine (gasp) while using our imaginations (gasp gasp).
They soon discovered this may be one of the most memorable activities of class this year. And I look forward to sharing even more of our adventures in the future.
