The Dreamer of a Thousand Names for Starlight

i should have been a history teacher...

Taking a break from teaching literature for a week to teach hardcore essay-test prep. EAP, SAT, maybe even some STAR prep, along with a (much-needed) review of how write an annotated bibliography and judge reliability and a tutorial on how to find research sources.

This is the good stuff! :D

Unfortunately, this is also the type of stuff that generates more and more work for me to grade. Long work. Essays. Uuuuuuugh. And I feel really pressed for time. I could spend a whole semester on teaching writing, but I only have 10 weeks of school left (well, really 9, because nothing ever gets done the last week of school) and we still need to get through two more novels and a mess of modern short stories and poetry.

Even though my icon shows a student, that is how I feel, too, when grading. Currently, I have 120 essays and 300 short essays to grade. My life is full of woe.
