2011-2012 school year: making connections

In this student’s defense, I believe I mentioned something about The Murders in the Rue Morgue. Even forgetting that, it was quite a tangent.

I remember when I first started teaching and I was pushing the idea of “making connections” on my class, I had one kid who connected EVERYTHING to the movie Saw III. Every connection he made in his journal, every connection he made in conferencing, every connection he made in small group… he connected it back to the third torture porn sequel to Saw. I cannot even imagine what that student is doing now!
