I was getting some housekeeping done while my students were watching the first 35 minutes of Gary Sinise's Of Mice and Men. It was hard to do all the work by the light of my computer, but I was determined. One of my tasks was sending heads-up emails to the kids and parents of those kids who failed the first quiz on the novel.

I looked at George's score: 3.5/10. I'm concerned, I wrote to George. Let's kick it into gear.

Later when I turned on the light, I found that George actually earned 8.5, not 3.5. It was hard to see in the dark. Plus, I'm getting old.

Yikes. Could communicate high expectations though. 8.5 isn't good enough for you George. We both know that. C'mon Pal!

How are they liking Of Mice and Men?

As most of my students were finishing typing yesterday, one student was far from being done. I told her I would type it exactly as she had it, but she would need to fix it. When she brought me the paper, I had to a) turn on another row of lights near my desk and b) put on my glasses. Geesh!
