It's 6:30 in the morning. I'm awake. Not only am I awake, but I am up and doing homework... It's a crazy world. I'm having a huge writers block, mostly becuase I don't care about data driven decision making in schools, so I thought I would blog a bit, maybe get the writing juices flowing a bit!
I decided that I hate APA format. Or any type of format, really. I hate that it can tell me what kind of font to use, and what size, and where to put my commas. I understand the need for everything to be consistent, but does it really matter if I have two spaces after a sentence instead of one?? Is my point not valid if I don't italicize the name of a journal? Really?
Overall, I would say school is going well. I really love being in the classroom again, it is so fun! What I don't love so much is the homework, but what can you do? The funny thing is, if I did half the things I tell my students to do every day, I would be just fine. But I don't. I procrastinate, I don't set up a schedule, I don't check to make sure my citings are correct, I just copy and paste them from the generator! I feel some cognitive dissonance coming on (Hey look! I'm applying my learning!)
