Friday last period

My last period on Friday offered the usual joy of last period on Friday. I had a reasonably good discussion question the kids did a solid job of exploring. Then I had an activity for them to build upon their notes to ferret out Lepore’s argument from chapter two. (More on this later.)

Conversation:

“Mr. Clapper, why did you become a teacher? ”

(I have a stock answer)

Well, even when I was little, I knew I wanted to read, write, and argue for a living. I could have been a lawyer. I could have been a minister (ha!). But I chose to become a teacher.

Pause.

Student: You could also have been a cult leader.

I love Fridays.
