I realize I have been a very, very bad blogger lately -- Spring Break combined with a wicked cold/flu thing -- but not to worry! Twisty over at IBTP has been blogging BRILLIANTLY
and you can hop over and read what I would have written if I were half as gifted as she is.
Go! I'm serious!
Here, it is all muddle and hammentashen (Purim coincided with that Christian holiday of Easter, so we had nice poppyseed filled cookies, and I also dyed eggs for the kid anyway, b/c why should she not enjoy pagan bits of other culture's holidays, even though this makes mr. delagar squint his eyes up and mutter about cossacks) and me being moody because tomorrow it is back to the classroom and I have yet to finish grading midterms.
Here is a query via the midterms, btw: what do you think -- is it okay to grade down a student just because that student dots her i's with little hearts?
Or am I being sexist?
It's a grim question indeed.
