I’m supposed to be doing my homework. Homework I was supposed to do over winter vacation.
I’ve been working on it, but it’s time for a break. Why? Because my head is swimming.
Between Costa’s three levels of questioning, eleven Kaplan icons, and six thinking hats, I’m done. At least for the moment.
It’s good stuff, really it is. It’s interesting, and I’m enjoying learning more about the world of educating gifted kids, but I need a break.
I’m afraid my brain isn’t as fluid as it once was, and integrating new learning is tougher. I’m feeling overwhelmed by my commitments lately and don’t quite know where to start.
I just haven’t had the mojo to get these assignments done. There, that’s the truth.
So now I’m digging out from under them to get them finished. It’s a lot, but I can do it. That’s it for my break. My conscience is clear now, and soon one of my assignments will be done and submitted, so that’s a good thing too. Thanks for letting me hang out with you for a few minutes while I procrastinated. I really did need it.
