My mythology students have their first unit test tomorrow. I think they are ready since we reviewed quite a bit with puzzles and a game, I expect at least a B average. It makes me a little anxious no matter how they do.
When the seniors ace the first exam, they tend to relax and work less hard leading to difficulties and struggles later. When they don’t do well in the beginning, they tend to lose a bit of heart and their industry decreases.
My hope is that I can keep them focused and on track, especially because the first of two mini-projects are upcoming in the next two weeks. Time will tell.
