I'm practically incapacitated today from some weird pain in my side. No, you don't really need to know all the body pains from poor OLD Mrs. McCabe, but this is what's on my mind today. I'm going to have a CT scan in a little while, so hopefully some smart doctor will figure out what's wrong with me.
In the meantime, I'm wondering how you're doing with your independent reading. We haven't checked in lately (not officially, at least), and I'm a little worried. Looking out over the class, I see you with your earbuds and headphones with a book open in front of you. I don't think you're reading, though. In fact, you can't be because of the noisy conversation level. Many of you are reading, and are probably distracted by the noise. This worries me greatly.
Do you think this assignment doesn't mean anything because you aren't getting a grade for it? If so, then that becomes a motivation issue, right? Do we need to talk about that?
