We have been using our advisory periods for extra review sessions in preparation for state assessments. I am working with an advanced group. They have had a pretty good attitude overall, but they aren't exactly thrilled about doing an extra 25 minutes of math.
To make matters worse, three of our sessions have conflicted with the student-produced school news broadcast. They love the broadcast, and were not happy about missing it. Someone said "I feel like we're being punished for being good at math."
I can understand them feeling that way. So, I whipped up a batch of these . . .
. . . chocolate chocolate chip cookies with embedded oreo, to help ease the pain.
If only they gobbled up math with the same enthusiasm . . .
