    I was trying to get some Essay grading out of the way while students took their Social Studies exams.
    I've drilled into these kids that they need to have an 'arsenal' of good literature read in order to kick butt on the critical lens essay. This is one student's response.

    " Literature opens a window to the soul, revealing both the good and the bad qualities of human nature." I agree with this quote. This quote means characters can make you feel good or bad about yourself. Two characters that agree with this quote are John, from the Pigman, by Paul Zindel, and Jesus, from the bible, by God."


    I can't even finish reading this ;)

    That's awesome; save it FOREVER! In fact, you ought to submit it to Richard Lederer, who writes those awesome "Anguished English" books, and other fabulous linguistic books.

    They did, but I didn't care-and really -neither did they...

    they've enjoyed my craziness since September.
