06:26 pm: An encounter with the living dead
My second-year students weren't just comatose this morning, they were dead. They came in (for first period, mind you) and promptly collapsed across their desks. It took all hour to coax seven sentences out of them.

They were slightly better when I had them again sixth period, because we were in the air conditioned computer room, but there were still a few napping. One girl, who neglected to bring her textbook, spent the hour doodling on the tables, even after I told her to stop. <sigh>

The English club students decided they don't want to do sundaes if they have to use canned fruit. The next idea on their list is fondue, though I don't know how they plan to manage that.

...they were dead.

We are all "dead" here in this heat. Maybe it's time to give lessons on cold things--skiing, ice fishing, ice skating, ice sculptures, their favorite winter activities,etc. Sometimes having the mind on this other stuff can help. I know in the winter, we're all thinking about the beautiful tropical islands!

They sound very imaginative.
