Four months of prep, and like that it's over. The last day of testing, the extended response, is done and I have to say the whole thing was a tad anticlimactic. I mean I don't know what I exactly expected - balloons and a ticker tape parade? Still, it's too bad we don't even know how we did (yes it feels like my students and I were being tested) for a few months. Tomorrow, if the students stay on task we'll have a mini-celebration. That's really the most closure I can offer for now, but it will have to do. Next: math in March and science in April.
