My daughter was bummed, but excited that school was cancelled for the rest of the year. Bummed because she doesn’t get to see her friends or go out for track. Excited because, “I can sleep in and not have to do homework.”
Sorry kid. The Professor Of Pop Culture is going to make sure you have homework.
I am by no means a certified teacher. My math scores were barely passing. I excelled in other areas. Speech, drama, being a class clown.
That being said, I decided to assign my daughter a series of assignments over the next few weeks. I want her to watch some classic movies, listen to some music outside of her comfort zone, etc. She then has to write a report about it and submit it on time. It’s kind of fun to see how a teenager looks at things from 20+ years ago.
Her first assignment was to watch Indiana Jones and The Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Here’s her report. Remember…she’s a teenager. Be nice.
