What We've Learned

My favorite magazine is Esquire, and my favorite part of Esquire is the monthly "What I've Learned" page, where they gather the wisdom of people as diverse as B.B.

The Declaration of the Rights of a Teacher

In English III we are studying The Declaration of Independence, and my students had to write a Declaration of The Rights of Teenagers.  In order to show them how it is done, I created this frivolous little document, which got a few laughs from my students.  Even though the silliness factor is off the charts, I have decided to include it on my blog.
