Fair Weather by Dorothy Parker
This level reach of blue is not my sea;
Here are sweet waters, pretty in the sun,
Whose quiet ripples meet obediently
A marked and measured line, one after one.
This is no sea of mine. that humbly laves
Untroubled sands, spread glittering and warm.
I have a need of wilder, crueler waves;
They sicken of the calm, who knew the storm.
So let a love beat over me again,
Loosing its million desperate breakers wide;
Sudden and terrible to rise and wane;
Roaring the heavens apart; a reckless tide
That casts upon the heart, as it recedes,
Splinters and spars and dripping, salty weeds.
Mental Health Minute
These are simply ways in which we might organize our thoughts through various placement upon the page. For overachievers, you can model your organizer within an overarching drawing (like raindrops, or food items, etc.). Think about these like a board game where your pieces are your thoughts or the information you are being presented with and simply create the board and place your pieces!
Mr. Pino Says
"Real talk kiddos, I lead a very busy life and only have so much time to give. I want to be able to connect with every single students I work with throughout the year. The reality is that, this is difficult when students do not work to meet me in the middle. I can tell you that, if you are interested in making a connection with me on a truer, realer, and more personal level, you will adhere to the writing commandments I have laid out for you here".
