We started a new semester this week. Because we are on a block schedule, I have all new classes. It is a bit of an adjustment. Last semester I had all Algebra 2 classes. Now I have two Pre Calculus classes and a Geometry. Guess what is different about my new bunch? They care.
It’s such a nice change! Almost every student turned in an assignment today. They take notes. They listen. They remember exponent rules. They try. They smile.
