Speaking of the assessment class, I picked up the text last night, blowing another $60 in the process. It's the fourth edition, replacing last year's third edition which I sold off promptly after class without waiting to see if I'd passed, but looks just as snarky and annoying as I remember the third edition. Maybe more cartoons lampooning NCLB. *shrug* Anyway, I'm glad I had Curriculum Development last year with Steve Schroeder-Davis; this year's class has been in session three weeks and has yet to talk about curriculum; they've been sitting in circles facilitating and checking in and passing the Talking Piece and not talking about how to build a curriculum, which is really pissing off my classmates. Nobody goes to St. Mary's to live through a Garage Logic comedy skit; the tuition is a wee bit pricey for that. OTOH, the assessment class is going very well. Dr. Eubanks is being much more about the hands-on, how-to stuff and less about theory this year. Oo-rah!
Today I'm busing in, doing the work, and heading over to Josh's afterward. Feeling slightly better rested, but I think I want more coffee before I hit the shower.
