This morning's USAToday says that it is the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. I
immediately thought about using that in a lesson for the students. A few weeks ago I learned that most of them did not know when the Civil War took place and that Abraham Lincoln was president during it.
I couldn't resist. I texted Tracy, my sub, and suggested using this anniversary as a subject of cell phone searches.
This is what I will miss as much as anything--the planning and the carrying out of those plans.
