Just a typical student email: This video accompanied with "Your pronunciation of the word conch is intruding on our childhood. This is the episode of Spongebob everyone was referring to today. Enjoy. :) "
We started reading Lord of the Flies in 8th grade ALA last week. LOVE this novel and the ensuing discussions! Regardless of grade level, a great car ride or dinner time conversation---what qualities are a must for a leader? Throw in some what-if's, require examples for back-up or clarification, and ask for real-life/kid-world applications...Fascinating responses on this one, and I always walk away wiser with the insight of our young people. Unless, of course, everyone is in an emotional meltdown because I am saying conch "wrong"....;) I do love my job!
