You have to go to school. You have to do homework. You have to get good grades or your parents won’t let you drive. So you do. But that doesn’t mean you have to like it.
But what if you could like it? What if you wanted to learn and study? What if you wanted to write papers and break off into groups to “discuss?” It’s possible, if you like what you’re being taught.
Behold the Pretenders Educator’s Guide. This baby is filled with dozens of ways teachers can school you on my series. Instead of writing a paper on Romeo and Juliet you could be writing about Lily and Duffy.
I know this year is winding down but it’s not too late to give a copy to your teacher or principal so they can jump on it for next year. The best part? I will go to your classroom and participate in the lesson. I don’t care where your school is, the more inconveniently located the better. I can watch you act out monologues from characters, read your essays, grade your essays, or discuss the writing process in general. I’m up for anything. Let’s hope your teacher is too. Print it, email it, leave in on the windshield of their fuel-efficient car. Just do it!
See you in class,
