Please keep after them on their reading. It IS important!
Seniors are fidgety...ready to be done and gone...into the world of REALITY and ADULTHOOD and RESPONSIBILITY. Oh...they can hardly wait to have it all and we say--
GO FOR IT!
Now you know it all and are ready for all life has to throw at you--freedom, making your own decisions, and the FUN of paying your own bills, and food, and rent, and insurance, and no one to bug you about waking up or being to school or work on time! You get to do it ALL by yourself!
However, you need to finish high school first and finish getting what you think you've already got. Hang on...
PLEASE finish reading Heart of Darkness. I have stretched it out as much as possible and given you the freedom of advancing at your own pace. It must be completed by the time you come back from spring break!
