Actual excerpt from a student’s summary of To Kill a Mockingbird‘s chapters 6 and 7. (Note: she wasn’t supposed to write a summary, she was supposed to compose a thematic essay question based on the chapters. But hey, when you’re a genius, who needs to read the instructions?)

They go for a walk one night and Jem end up loosing him pants. Jem and Scout go back to school and that mean that they are have to pass that their old oak tree.

Child in question does not have the excuse of coming from an ebonics background, incidentally. My gast, it is flabbered.

The Bee’s Knees

This is the teaching journal of a student first-year second-year THIRD-YEAR (!!!) English teacher. I am writing this blog as a reflection for myself, a way to keep friends and family updated, and a sharing-ground between other educators online. I love comments!

I am striving to maintain anonymity on this blog so that I may more freely interact with my fellow edubloggers. If you know who I am, please help me protect my anonymity in your comments. I use pseudonyms or initials for everyone I write about to preserve their anonymity as well.
