Writing Fun

Writing can be a lot of fun. Especially if it's someone else's. Below are two excerpts by Great Scott's students, who are turning in papers on To Kill a Mockingbird.

"Mr. Ewell, Mayella's father, attacks Jem, Atticus son, who is a layer for Tom Robinson. Mr. Ewell whines up getting stabbed and dieing."

And

"Tom Robinson...has a trail for the rapping of Mayella."

Indeed. Funny, but this reminds me of why I am glad to have left teaching (first career of three).
So glad that wonderful book is still on the curriculum.

You know, I don't remember Tom Robinson having a chicken farm...

The ones that crack us up every year are the papers on Julius Caesar. Without fail, there are loins roaming the streets when the compositions are turned in.

This is why I'm grumpy all the time.

Okay, sometimes I'm chortling with malicious glee.
