This did not go as planned.

At the beginning of the year, I put in several filler posts - cartoons, weird covers, etc.  I also threw in some writing posts throughout the semester.  The plan was to then slip in a post or two a week with the filler posts keeping the blog dynamic when I was swamped.

But I've been swamped the entire year.  One of the reason is a new course I am developing for this second semester.  It is a mythology class that covers Greek & Roman, Norse, Celtic, Egyptian, and Polynesian.  I've been working my butt off to get this thing ready and now I am racing to stay ahead of the students.  Something I have not had to do in quite a while.  However, I am quite proud of my start and I invite you to check out the site so far (I'm a dding to it about everyday).

The other reason being the larger classes for English IV than the past and some crazy notion  I had to change things up a bit, thus adding more work on myself.  I'm eager to discuss these things with you - movie based unit for Shakespeare, grading by type of lesson, and some new tech thing I've found.  But time got away from me.

So I'm putting this blog on a hiatus.  No more filler posts (well, one is left scheduled for later in the year).  Once I am ready to fill this blog up with better quality posts, I'll be back. This time truly EXTREME and not just SORT OF OK.
