An 8th Grade History Teacher

I subbed today for an eighth grade history teacher.

I "had" to give lecture-ish notes on the Reconstruction.  I loved it.  Classes are so much easier when I know what I'm talking about and I don't have to try and figure out stuff on the spot.  It would have been even smoother if I'd known that was the topic ahead of time, so I could have prepped.  Lucky for me I recently saw the America: The Story of Us episode on the Civil War and Reconstruction.
Once again, though, when I tell the kids, "hey, you're in luck.  This is what my degree is in" all I get in return are groans.
