Asking For It

Yesterday while teaching a creative writing class at West Adams, I asked my ninth graders to make a list of the things they love and another of the things they can't stand. This usually produces surprisingly funny and honest writing. Yesterday was no exception. But, when I asked them to read aloud... Over and over, the thing they can't stand more than their siblings or parents is teachers who make them write. I guess I was asking for that one. Good thing my students don't determine my ego strength!

Tomorrow I'm going to make them write even more!
