After reading the poem of my student who I have struggled with having him complete assignments, I had to share.
When in life am I going to use poetry?
Why do I have to learn to write it?
It is more useless than a broken arm,
and two severed legs.
Many teachers I know would have been furious with an assignment turned in like this because they view it as blatant disrespect. Not me, I saw it as a poet who used visual imagery to share his feelings about a subject while invoking emotion in the reader.
So to my reluctant worker you have earned an A+.
There was no jog/walk today as I have been fighting a migraine all day and came home and crashed in bed.
