It's only the beginning of fourth quarter, and I already sense that the kids are completely checked out. I clued in where after asking the same question to five different students where each of them provided blank stares [after having heard the answer from the previous students], and a choral response where EVERYONE say out the answer, I asked one more kid, and he STILL didn't know the answer. I almost literally banged my head into the desk, and instead popped two Advil and jokingly berated them for having left their brains behind during Spring Break and demanding that they bring them the next day. It just feels like everyone is focused on the end of the year now and not on learning new content. What do you do when your class gets like this (and too early, I feel)? We're beginning our space unit (I save our most engaging unit for last usually specifically because of this) soon, so hopefully that will get some up-and-at'em.
