Alright. I taught the elements of plot Monday, Tuesday and Wed. I gave examples. We used graphic organizers. I gave a quiz on it today. The definitions were on the board. I gave the answers to them. My quiz grades? 20s, 30s, 40s. A few 100s. Those were my grades. 100s or Flat Fs. I'm in a rough neighborhood. The kids are violent and some are just mean mean mean. I really don't know if I'm cut out for teaching. :-( I want to make a difference... I want to teach them... I want to show them the world. But they really have to stop talking first. They need to quit throwing their bodies on the floor everytime I say no. Sigh.
