I wanted my senior AP English Literature class to have an important experience for their end of the year project, something after the exam that would be personally meaningful. I also recognized that public speaking was not something we focused on in AP, but a skill they would need again and again in the future. So I decided we (I did it, too) would write and deliver farewell speeches as we make this transition in our lives, all of them to college, me to a life after classroom teaching. They went into this project kicking and screaming (even at the end a few were still full of loathing for the project), but all in all the speeches were a huge success, some funny, some nostalgic, all revelatory, and many inspiring. This Wordle represents them all. I will miss this group of 11 seniors, but I know they will be very successful in the years to come. Stay in touch Hannah, Liz, Nate, Callie, Margo, Jamie, Kelly, Jimmy, Heather, Lilly, and Caitlynn.
