Keeping Up With The Fredrick Jones

I just heard that the science teachers have organized a field trip to the local amusement park—something about the physics of roller-coasters. Man, when they’re not blowing up stuff in class, then they’re tossing eggs. Now, they’re leaving campus and riding stuff called the “Killer Coaster” and the “Side Splitter”. There’s no beating those guys when you teach English.

It’s not just the science guys either. There are some famous historical battlefields in the area, so social studies has a leg up. Shoot, even the foreign language departments go to Europe during Spring Break.

This is no paranoid insecurity either. Students notice and comment on the discrepancy of “activities” between my class and others.

“We never do anything fun in here.”

I need to think of something. I mean the kids won’t go along with my “It’s fun to not go out and work on reading and writing! We’re just like Emily Dickinson!” speel forever.
