Since I blog, not nearly consistently, it was easy to write about the best day I ever had, in recent memory, as a teacher. I’d blogged about it already.
So, I had a bit more fun with "The Masque of the Red Death" this year during my 10th-grade Honors' Poe unit than I usually do besides setting up the colored strings of lights to coincide with the colored rooms.
I was going to try and memorize and perform the story for the students, but I'd been in a car accident, so that didn't happen.
Instead, I bought all the students masquerade masks from Amazon for them to wear while we read. They appreciated the fact that I bought them something and seemed to enjoy wearing them.
I, too, had a little fun and dressed the part. I hope the kids appreciate the fact I'm willing to embarrass myself for them.
