Geez, Thanksgiving. Turkeys are hard to come by, so today it's eel.
In yesterday's class we started a unit on jobs. When I asked the students about what kinds of jobs they were looking forward to, I was surprised to find that they actually had ideas. In the past three years students have often answered that they don't have any preferences. Yesterday was a big change. 4 students answered that they didn't know. Favorite employment options included public servants at 2, business persons at 3, and one travel agent. One person said that he wanted to be president of the US, and another that he wanted to go and work in the US. When asked what kind of work he'd like to do, he said that he didn't care, that he just wanted to work there.
