Highlight From This Week's Reflection Paper

"My learning community is composed of numerous interlocking groups, a multi-component Venn diagram that overlaps and intersects in powerful ways, both seen and unseen, voices heard and ignored."

I think I'll feel better about all this if I just completely over-write every single sentence, as if I were penning a manifesto of the ages.

Update:
I just used the word "zeitgeist."

"Zietgiest." Hmm...I don't think that I will ever have the opportunity to use that term and do anything but define it.

You are planning to keep us updated on how your eduspeak pastiche is received, aren't you? H.

H.,

The professor did not understand my writing. Also, I need to improve my use of grammar because I included a fragment.

"Happy days are here again..."


P.S. (Did your order get kicked back to you? Can you email me about this?)

I really hate the term "Venn diagram." Who was Venn anyway? But if you're tired from actually doing your job (i.e. teaching), and you don't know what else to say in education class, just blurt out "Venn diagram!" Everyone will nod, and your professors will love you. Only people who went to education school know this term. It's kinda' like Delaney cards. (Do you have those in Oakland, or is it just a NYC phenomenon?) Somehow this guy named Delaney convinced every school district in NYC that they needed to use his cards to create seating charts. The cards are from the 1940's, and NYC is still using them! I'm going to make a Venn diagram to tell the story of the Delaney card.
