Do Now: As you walk towards your respective subway or bus, take measure of the day to come. If you feel like being intense this morning, visualize giving your lesson and seeing brain scattered all over the walls as you blow students’ minds. If you need to catch up on grading, break out some papers and put marks on students’ homework that makes them question if you grade drunk. If you commute with a friend, you may take this opportunity to talk about life, the universe, and everything else while all the solemn people heading to Bronx listen in. Or catch 32 minutes of extra sleep and pray that you miraculously wake up at your stop.
