The Power of Cupcakes

Apparently,  bribing high school students with cupcakes is highly effective. My students performed beautifully during their NABE observation! Literally every student was on task, which is pretty amazing, and they engaged well in the task and might have even had some productive learning moments. When one of the women said, "This is such a nice class!" I had to hold my tongue and resist spewing the statistics of the number of ninth-grade repeaters in the class, the number of kids with parole officers... because today they really were nice! It was amazing! (They also enjoyed their cupcakes after the visitors left.)
