Who Shot the Sheriff?
A town loses both their Sheriff and Deputy to gun violence in a short period of time. Would you believe a suspect that said that he shot and killed one of them and not the other? What are the chances that a municipality that is small enough to have but one Sheriff and one Deputy will have them both shot in separate incidents by multiple culprits?
Adventures in 7th Grade Discipline
One of my classes is pretty verbose and rowdy. The code word is "social." I have not had much success in getting AND maintaining their attention this year. This class lags behind my other sections on a consistent basis when I am presenting lessons just because there are more interruptions from the class. Some interruptions are unwanted, like stupid 7th grade jokes about Uranus. Some are ok, like questions about how the material relates to them and other interesting tangents.
