Really Good Day

Yesterday was the first day I was actually in front of the kids by myself for the whole 84 minutes of class. And it rocked!

I tought them about the Aztecs, and they actually listened to me lecture! Honestly. They really did. It was a short lecture - they aren't being tested on it, so I was just presenting them with why they were interesting, and why they were important. Cool stuff. And then we did a thing on Aztec art - the kids got in pairs and analyzed two figures that were up on powerpoint. They were really astute, and really impressed me with some of their comments about the figures. So happy! And then, I gave them an art activity - they got in groups of 4 and picked out a famous human (any human, real or not was fine) and had to draw it like the Aztecs would have. They were all on task, and working well together, and the pics were pretty amazing. One group did a Barbie doll in Aztec style, and one did Li'l Jon with his dreads all multicolored and sticking up like a headdress, and his 'crunk' necklace hanging on a chain of skulls. So damn cool.

The kids that are normally a pain in my arse were really good and engaged, and the 84 minutes felt like 30 or 40, it went so fast and smooth. I was going to video tape the session, but forgot to set it up before class, of course.

All of which means that today, when I do actually turn the camera on, it's all gonna go down the toilet. Law of averages, you know.

Ι leave a respοnse whеnever I lіkе a poѕt on a websitе οr if I have somеthing to add
tο the cоnversation. It's caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I browsed. And after this article "Really Good Day". I was actually excited enough to post a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.
Could іt be onlу me оr ԁo some of the responses aρpear like coming from
bгain dead peoρle? :-P Anԁ, if уоu аre ωriting on aԁditional online siteѕ, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list every one of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
