Believe it or not, I try to have a life outside of educational assessment and improvement of student learning. That means – for example – participating in all of the normal stuff that people do over the Thanksgiving holiday. So over the past five days I’ve packed suitcases, adapted to changes in travel plans, made conversation with all manner of family, and wished I hadn’t eaten __________. I find it a bit troubling that although I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about learning from past behaviors to improve future behaviors I can’t seem to learn from my previous mistakes regarding serving size, mashed potatoes, and gravy.
All this is simply to say that I didn’t write a thing last weekend. Sorry. And my fingers might actually now be too fat to fit onto a normal keyboard. So you’ll have to wait til next week for another post.
Usually, I write about data findings that are ambiguous in some way. This week, I can only write about something that was delicious. Literally. And most of me now regrets that second helping. Actually, maybe the regret is really about the third helping . . .
Make it a good day,
