So whose talents do you want to develop in your class? Most schools don't seem to have a really good idea of what they're supposed to be working on any more, although NCLB is doing its fumbling best to make sure that most of the kids have at least some of their logical-mathematical and linguistic intelligences tuned up, and the lure of the big money to be made in pro sports will make sure that kids (or their parents, or their coaches) are spurred to develop their bodily-kinesthetic gifts. I'm not sure there's any good way to reach the kids with the other four gifts until they make it obvious that they do in fact have those gifts, and then maybe you can do something about it. Unfortunately, as with some highly-drafted prospects, you can kick those mules in the ass all you want and not only are they not going to turn into racehorses, they may not even be much interested in pulling your cart.
I thought I might be interested in doing something after class, but it's been a long week with too much drama in it and I am tired. I think I'm just going to go lay down and watch anime until revolutionaryjo shows up to get her sack full o' AMVs.
Oh, yeah, I got an A in the Tech class. Finally.
More important news: I got a look at my annual review. I am still, according to the Evil banking Neighbor, officially mediocre, and will probably get a raise in keeping with said mediocrity. There is still no block for "Continues to endure a managerial regime that would happily see him dead except nobody else wants his job. Nobody. At all."
