Reflection: Joy What a Farce! - Section 2: Getting Down to Business


This is one of those days that I find the joy in teaching that is sometimes lost.  Even chipper ole me can become jaded during the long winter months.

I truly feel that there is a time for guided instruction and there is a time for simply enjoying literature.  Today is a day for enjoying literature.  Walking around the room and hearing even the shyest of students respond to the ridiculousness of this play is music to my ears. 

I think this is what I love about literature the most.  Our content can be so much fun!  It's good to stop and remind ourselves of this once in a while!
