Tomorrow We Have Our NCLB Assessment

I read a review in The New Yorker of a play about Mark Rothko. The play sounds riveting, and I'd love to see it.

I marked up the review for my juniors to use as a model to use in writing about their choice plays on the wiki. I wasn't so impressed by their first wiki check. Part of the problem is that some groups just didn't do their assignments at all. I have hope that they'll do the assignments this week. Why not? I might as well hope.

I'm also holding out hope that I'll be able to see plays again someday. Someday when the children are a little older and don't require me to lie down with them for 45 minutes per evening.

I would love to see this play. I have a Mark Rothko on the wall next to my desk!
