GOSSIP GIRL books August 3, 2008

Ok, so I liked them. I am not necessarily hooked, but they are good. I don’t know…there is so much alcohol and drug reference, and I don’t want to sound like a prude, but I hope that the HS kids I teach don’t do that stuff!!

I haven’t read the IT GIRL series, but Miss Carrie said they are fantastic!! I will look into those…


Syllabus. Rules. Plans!

Filed under: 1 — missfryer @ 3:43 am

Have you ever read a syllabus? Of course you have. Have you ever written one? Well, it’s really hard. I am nervous about mine…how much is too much? How much is too little? This syllabus sets the tone of my classroom. I don’t want to sound like a pansy, but at the same time, I don’t want to sound like a tyrant either. I wrote out my classroom rules on poster board today really big so that no one will forget them! They are going to be above my whiteboard. Well, my roommate’s boyfriend read them and said, “You are a Nazi!” At first, I was offended, but then I realized that maybe I do want to come off strict at first. I just don’t want to be run over.

This is so much fun! I’m reading the Lit books and getting so very excited about how to tach the stories that I have fallen in love with before and will again. Poe, Steinbeck, Dickinson! WHOOHOO!
