October Already !?

Week 6 - can't believe time got away from me and I've neglected this blog until now.  We've already plowed through our first novel, written an essay, held some great class discussions and are headed on a field trip.  No wonder it's taken me a few weeks to get back into the routine.  We're beginning The Great Gatsby so I'm pulling out materials from last year, scouring the internet for new stuff, and anticipating our viewing of at least two of the three films - Leo being the latest.  This year's group of seniors is quite a mix of academic all-stars and apathetic bodies but I'm doing the best I can thus far to keep up their enthusiasm and mine.  We'll see how it goes.
