Dream Time

Last night I dreamed I was very earnestly arguing with my AP over why it would not be appropriate for us to assign students to perform with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir over the winter holiday. Argument 1: We couldn't require students to participate in religious events for a grade. Argument 2: We couldn't be sure all students would have the funds available to fly to Utah. Argument 3: We couldn't be certain that all students had had the voice training necessary to get into the choir.

You know you've been thinking too much about authentic assessment and what homework should look like when you have dreams like this. Either that, or the growing variety of increasingly ineffective things our admin wants us to do this year is starting to get to me.
