Will they recall anything that we have told them? Any great classical works that we have shared with them? They leave us and we really never know..... Or do we?!
Here are a few pieces of proof that I have received from students recently... proof that they have learned something and that some of those "somethings" have STUCK with them! "Thanks to you I know what they mean in Gilmore Girls when
"Hey, there was a quote on "Friends" tonight in which one of
them said he was "going to go all Lennie on you"... and I knew
what they meant because we read Of Mice and Men!"
"Even though we only read an excerpt from Pride and
Prejudice, do you know how I knew Mrs. Bennett was
slightly nuts? She was referenced in one of Jasper
Fforde's novels I was reading"!
