I just have to take a moment to brag on calculus kids. We’re on block scheduling right now, which means I require them to work on math for pretty much two hours straight (they are allowed one bathroom break). Today, they made their flip books, which turned out beautiful! They sat there and made their little books without a single complaint. When they were finished, they turned to their “Big Picture” pamphlet and started working on that.
Sometimes it just amazes how good these kids are. Why do they do some of the crazy stuff I ask them to do? My only conclusion: they are wonderful human beings.
