Levels of Cool

In case any of you were unclear on this point... there are several levels of cool. Unfortunately, I am not really at the top of any of the upper levels. As a matter of fact, I have been a nerd all my life (nazi is a new title, though). So please understand your approval or lack of will not deter me in my efforts. I am excited about the coming weeks and forcing some of you out of your comfort zone. Shakespeare... Acting... Writing... Researching...Analyzing Literature... What could be cooler!

Well, lets see, counting my toes might be cooler. Im not a huge fan of acting, memorizing, or writing. Especially writing. But oh well, you arent gonna change it for us anyway, are ya?

ummmmm, I'm gonna go ahead and blog on this one, but I am not sure what it is asking. It might need to be reworded, but I think it is asking whatelse would be cool for us to do in class. Watching movies is always a good thing. I also think making movies would be fun, but I hear we are doing that later in the year....so, yeah. peace.

Dear Mrs. Caldwell,
I am sorry if I have offended you in anyway. I know my comments have been a little over the top. I just want my old teacher back.
Please Forgive,
Elliott Miller

Man, we didn't even have blogs when I was studying English. I bet people's spellling is better with the auto-spell checker. You're cool Mrs. C! My pasts teachers ain't got nothing on you.

Okay definately analyzing shakespeare could be cooler. I think it is so boring going through Macbeth and answering questions and it just gets really repetitive and I hate it! but I know there isn't really any other way to get it done, but it isn't very cool. I do on the other hand like the acting thing or whatever.. I'm not a fan of all the lines that i have to memorize but I think it's going to be a fun experience. But yah, analyzing shakespeare could be cooler!

I think the only thing that could take me out my comfort zone would be a one way ticket to the Neverland Ranch. Think About It. As for the cool part...it would be cool to see some of your former students acting so that we can pick up a few pointers.

When it comes to getting up infront of the class, I tend to become very nervous; however, I think this acting assignment will help to take me out of my comfort zone. I feel that by practicing and interacting with my group, I will feel less nervous acting our scene out infront of the class.

I don't think you're a mean, hateful, NAZI at all. The first day I hated you're class and I wanted to transfer out because I thought you were going to be really hard. However, now that I have an A I freakin love you Mrs. C

Getting up in front of people to act out a play, yeah that'll test my comfort zone. I'm in front of plenty of people playing basketball, although I don't think that would help. Who knows? I guess it could.

-special shout out to Ashton with the quality post
