I know I've been having a 9th grade love-in lately, and it's true: I really like freshman, especially when I'm in the middle of a really great unit. But another reason I love it is because I can have conversations like this:
Student: How come like every book we read, the movie comes on tv like all the time whenever we're reading it?
Me: Oh, it's because I call up Comcast and ask them to play the movies to match our curriculum. It helps them with ratings and they send me a check every month.
Student: Really! Cool! How much do you get? Can we have a pizza party?
They're so easy. Unfortunately I can't keep a straight face very long around them for long.
