Kinda feels like I am trying to ride two horses with one ass... - 09/20/2013

   I love this movie and I think this was my favorite line.   And... while my situation is very different than Reese Witherspoon's in this movie,  I can relate. I don't know what it is about this year,  but OMWord,  I cannot seem to catch my breath.   And it seems universal.   I have talked to friends in Michigan,  North Carolina, and my step sister in Minnesota and they are feeling it.   So much pressure,  so much push,  so much stress and we aren't even a month in yet!  Why? For me right now,  I think I am experiencing growing pains.   I am in love with Project Based Learning.  My district is really excited about it,  gave out grants to write lessons and well... do them. I spent my whole summer immersed and obsessed with PBL.  But as excited as I am,  and as prepared as I thought I was... I am feeling like I am riding two horses with one ass (albeit a pretty large ass).  While we are moving ahead in philosophy,  our grading standards and testing are the same.  And well,  they don't really fit.   We are finally completing our first big project,  but we have already "tested" our students on the unit....last week.   So while I am working hard to help students direct their own learning,  I know what they have to know on the test (which their GRADE depends on) so I am feeding them information ...
