Bright and early (during 1st period) the fire alarm sounded. We made our way to the field and waited until the all clear was sounded. Unfortunately when the whistle blew, the bell rang dismissing class. As frustrating a drill is, today's drill let to many discoveries. 1) Everyone made it out safe and sound and stayed with their class. If this were a real fire, we all would have been safe. 2) My lesson for the day was scratched, but this gave me time to have some fun in looking at interview questions, and how to make them better. 3) I was able to continue my beta testing of SpringBoard.
Homework: With the Beta Testing, students do not have any homework. They are doing an amazing job of working with the text, analyzing the stories, and writing. I'm very proud of the students and their hard work.
