Reflection: Safety Responses to The Communist Manifesto: Disecting Arguments - Section 2: Class Discussion: Marx's Overall Purpose


I have been miserably sick all week long...not sick enough to stay home, but sick enough to sound like a dying frog any time I talk. I know that you have likely been there with me and you would probably groan as much as I did when I realized I had planned a lesson that was so talk heavy today. Thankfully, my classroom is a safe place not only for my students to learn, but for their teacher to suffer silently.

We read the list of Communist characteristics out loud and my students were so kind and participatory. I don't want to be sick like this again anytime soon, but I do appreciate what my illness reminds me about my class, which is that I have wonderful, caring and thoughtful teenagers in my care. I hope that I can show them as much compassion and grace as they showed me today.
