Well, we began class by doing a diction practice, and then Mr. Eldridge announced that we could read responses of AP exams online and that it was “…really cool to read one” and even after 100 minutes when “their brains are melting” AP students are still “rocking”. He continued to go off topic, mimicking a show (I forgot the name), and when we returned he picked on Celeste and Bridget because they weren’t paying attention to Jose’s response, about what kindling is. Then Mr. Eldridge made a reference to Bambi and then Frankie announced he would “want a baby deer to burst” and then he laughed at his own joke. Out of nowhere Mr. Eldridge once again gets derailed and announces that his dog got surgery, to replace a ligament in its knee, and that “she’s probably pissed.” I sort of then spaced off when Melissa taps me on the shoulder and reminds me to take notes and so I do. Mr. Eldridge then states that the people who got a C or less could rewrite their essays (tone) and then he scorns us for not writing faster stating, “write faster…like make your hands mover faster.” Then he once again reminds the entire class of our burden that we “only get 120 minutes to write three essays.” We continue to go more in depth in education, and he begins explaining college courses and the importance of our major. He states that in a history class one must read about 300 pages per week and Frankie proclaims “I ain’t gonna do that”, earning a laugh from the class. After that, Mr. Eldridge tells a story about how he passed his math final, and before he had taken the final he had an F but he ended the class with a C-, and he was very proud of himself. Oh, and after that he goes on about how he has no idea of why Mrs. Summeral let us sit where we wanted, so he made up groups where we now permanently sit and we also named our groups. I personally like my seat however I heard a lot of disagreements. Since we now had assigned groups, we went over our group norms (rules); some examples are being considerate, nice and friendly. Mr. Eldridge also stated the downfalls of the groups; the class was more vulnerable to distractions. We played a mini game and then Mr. Eldridge passed out a worksheet, and then the bells rang. Once the bell rang everyone stampeded to the door as usual and the class was over.
