I feel pretty lame today. Last night we recieved back our first lil writing assignment that I shared with you all in the previous post, and well it turns out that I didn't read the article correctly and so therefore my lil arguement that I was feeling oh so proud about was null and void.
I don't feel as stupid only because so many other students in the class misunderstood the very same thing that I did, and therefore it is partly the writers problem BUT all the same I feel pretty LAME.
Apparently , I will be learning some things in college , like how to read :)

If that many students misunderstood what the assignment was, the probably the teacher's writing was what was lame.

yeah, seriously....that just brings to mind how important it is as a teacher to be clear and prepared. I wouldn't take it personally AT ALL.....I have nothing for my first day of class on Tuesday. I will be standing in front of 9th graders. I must be prepared on more than one level.

thanks gals for making me feel better but when i got it back and her notes at the end were nicely telling me that i missed the whole point i felt pretty lame.
no worries, i am over it already and on to the next writing assignment which is on "something i have noticed lately in the american culture" could be anything from tatoos to so many crappy movies. should be fun.

Noel: I have some cool suggestions for you that should inflame your teacher;

"Things I've noticed in the American culture"

1. Public education has become the biggest entitlement program since the New Deal.
2.Like . . . clear communication has like . . . become as rare as like . . . a professor without an agenda . . . like . . .
3.America's propensity to hate herself in the hope the rest of the world will think she's cool.

Okay, I'm being a smarty-pants . . . no one else may think I'm funny but I'm cracking myself up . . .
