Personal Stuffs: This was boring week in terms of personal stuff, lots of work. I did have dinner with my family though and was reminded that they really really don’t get feminism.
Classroom Stuffs: I taught my tenth graders badly all week. This unit is kicking my ass. I am hoping this week (test on previous unit, start new) will give me a fresh start.
Personal Change: I got a disco ball, does that count? Also, I bought myself flowers and cleaned my apartment so I am feeling ready for the week. (Can we have 3 day weekends all the time?)
Classroom Change: New units in both 9 and 10, I want to start them both with a reflection circle on how they felt about this unit and what we as a class need to change.
Reading: Okay, so I never started Orleans and I am avoiding My Brilliant Best Friend and instead I stole Zadie Smith’s On Beauty which picked up from a friend’s classroom. I am really enjoying reading a physical book.
Watching: Gotham, I watched the first two a while back and wasn’t hooked but my brother convinced me to try again and I love the duo of Donal Logue and Ryan from the OC.
Your assigned reading: Hermione and the Goddamn Patriarchy. Favorite Quote: “Yes all witches. All witches have had to put up with comments like that, and worse.”
Also, Happy MLK Jr Day. May we reach a point in which all voices are heard and all people are equal.
