The people behind us kept laughing at Effie while I was fucking SOBBING :( :( :( :(
I thought I was the only one who felt this way/experienced this. I was so disgusted I flipped out on the way home and my brother in law was like well the noises he made were awkward. EXCUSE ME IF YOU WERE BEING TORTURED WOULD YOU MAKE NORMAL NOISES?
I am finding that even though I am English teacher (life-long nerds, supposedly) there is a difference between normal “female” nerds who love books and romance stories, etc. and those people who like all things nerdy and weird.
My love of Sci-Fi and The Walking Dead is so far from all of my female co-workers. Whenever I talk about these nerdy things at school (with a male co-worker) I feel terribly nerdy…
Do you think there is a difference between literary nerds and sci-fi nerds?
The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready.
Alright #Education, how do you deal with cheaters?
I’ve got a couple of cheaters on a quiz, where its obvious that one looked at another’s paper. I have a pretty good idea of who did the actual copying but what about the people who let the copying happen?
My students are in 9th and 10th grade.
How would you deal with this?
Every time I give an assessment (for all levels of my 9th grade class) I explain that if they talk while the quiz/test is out they will get a zero and if they cheat they will get a zero and a detention. We came up with these consequences together at the beginning of the year, they signed a contract, and I just remind them every time. Sure, I have some students who still try to cheat. I never let it get very far because I’m always standing right next to them the second they’re looking astray.
We better reblog this as much as we can 2013 is almost over
