The First Long Weekend

Published by:

Labor Day 2013 – A Dog on a tube

Labor Day is upon us, and that is a very exciting thing for your teachers and your parents (unless they were enjoying your days away).  You see, even though you students will – if you play your cards right – have many more three day weekends ahead, the staff and community of Burns High are working away most Fridays to give you the best education possible.

To help you pass the time over the long weekend, why don’t you introduce the BBQ attendees or hunting buddies to the site that became a senior class obsession: the Herb Nerd Personality Quiz (click on the bolded name for link).  Labor Day in our modern world is all about the food.  If you don’t mind being compared to the food that your food eats, take this quiz and find the right herb for your diet.  It might even help you in school!

I hope you all have a great weekend, and eat up! (Also, Go Pokes!)

Hello Blogosphere!

Published by:

I’m Justin Earnshaw, a teacher of English. This blog is intended to serve as a resource for my students, as well as an online venue to begin establishing a digital presence. As a relative neophyte to the digital realm, this is a learning experience for me, and perhaps one for you, dear reader.

Things you can expect to see on this blog:

  • Messages for students (to discuss, inform, and motivate, etc.).
  • Connections to literary texts of the world (e.g. book reviews, links to excellent essays, geeking out over movie trailers).
  • Noticings about this corner of the world — southeast Wyoming and the front range corridor.

Things you should not expect to see on this blog:

  • Vitriol, vehemence, and other vile things found on the web’s dark(er) corners (such as hate speech, trolling, New York Yankees fans).
  • Detailed elements of my personal life – students will not know where I live or where my gold is buried.
  • An easy, how-to guide to doing it all the right way. This is simply my view on matters pertaining to the best possible worldly and academic education for my students.

Thanks for reading this, and now get back to reading that book!
