To show you exactly the kind of humor my kids bring everyday into my life, I now present "going into Edward-Mode,":
....to explain....my students are very inventive. Part of the reason I think the story appeals to students, especially male students, is the gothic / supernatural aspects of the stories (i.e all the really cool vampire and werewolf stuff). One day while passing out papers, I heard one of my students say, "oh nooooooo, he went into Edward-mode." I inquired immediately of course! They explained to me that Edward-Mode is just a term they made up for all of the abilities that Edward has that they wished they did: strength, speed, agility. Then they offered to show me exactly what they meant.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Please check back Sunday for my students answers to this week's questions. The questions for this week can be found in the post before this one! Keep posting, I know my students will love to hear your thoughts!!
