Itís always this point in the year where I start to get down on myself for being a crappy teacher. I look back on the things Iíve taught and the projects weíve done and try to figure out what worked and what didnít. I always think I shouldíve done more or tried harder than I did. Itís so much easier to contain a rowdy class by having them do an independent assignment at their desk rather than trying to wrangle them into cooperating for a more creative lesson. I struggle with that every few weeks and it always bothers me.
