I’m testing all day today. I need to burn a new CD. My CDs cost me money, but these shiny discs improve the class atmosphere greatly. The pre-test whining should all but vanish if I add enough of the right music.
Eduhonesty: My ITunes libray has to be one of the weirdest collections on the planet. This middle-aged woman who favors indie rock and even folk keeps downloading rap, hip-hop and whatever they call these Mexican ranch songs. Whatever works, I say. Sometimes I dance a little to the music. The kids like to see my lame dancing attempts. When the test is over, at the end, they will be welcome to dance, too.
