Sustained Silent Reading

Dear Student Who Was Reading A Novel Instead Of Paying Attention In Class:

Glad as I am that you are reading for pleasure, please put your novel away until class is over. If you think I embarassed you today, just you wait.

If you don't believe me, ask the student in the class before you, who was reading a newspaper while I was lecturing.

It was the third time he got it out that set me off.

Yeah, that third time is a charm, all right.


Mrs. Mamacita

P.S. Couldn't you at least read a GOOD novel in my class?


Speaking of Sustained Silent Reading, I'm all for it, but I can't help but think that a public secondary school teacher who devotes half of every single class to it is perhaps a bit on the lazy side. . . . .

It was hearing about him saying "If we have enough time left after your Silent Reading, we'll have a lesson," that tipped me off.

I'm no Sherlock Holmes, but REALLY now.

I'm just sayin'. And so are your students.
