I can't believe it's not a run-on sentence 6 - 3.20 #sol19 Story Challenge

File this one under irony: Less than one hour after a history-teaching colleague dropped by my classroom to share a conversation he had facilitated with eight-graders this morning about dynamics of compliance and resistance among specific subgroups in Europe during World War II, I found myself in a lunchtime meeting doing the due-process dance that involves force-fed logistics in advance of annual state-wide testing in reading, writing, math, and science for three days next month, circumstances that left me weighing the costs and benefits (a.k.a. risks and rewards) of myself complying, resisting, or seeking alternate ways to those two forks in this particular road.


  1. Wow! What a great sentence. Full of so much. I prefer to write in fragments myself!

  2. Oh my, that is impressive! And yes, ironic. :-) ~JudyK

  3. Impressed by your one sentence-slice and, as a result, determined to write a one-sentence comment, I find that my propensity for creating shorter phrases separated with dashes and such is both hindering my ability to continue writing for long and preventing me from saying much of substance which is, I fear, the very opposite of what your post did. In short, I love it.
