Are you as tired as I am with Winter? It is that time of year when we think of flowers, sun, and patio parties. Not here in the upper mid-west. Winter is never ending!
As a GED teacher, I see the GED 'blues" or depression setting in on some of the students I work with. They are not always showing up, and when they do.... they are not necessary ready to WORK.
Just keep encouraging your students! Let them know that winter is just about over and that it is normal to get the winter blues.
Perhaps take a field trip, or have a "I can't wait until Summer" party.
Now is not the time to slow down.... but to keep pressing forward.
Remind them to keep their eye on the prize!
