didls

The truthiest of truths: the further I get into my teaching career, the more I hate repeating myself and the more I take the time to find ways to make it so I can say, “I have already gone over that, but you have the tools to find the answer to that question in your possession. I suggest re-reading the handout.”

I’m sure all of you have heard about Didl’s crash yesterday during COC in Brotterode. It seems he landed on his back pretty hard and was unconscious for some time. Even if many people say ‘he’ll be okay’, I’m shocked because we saw the dark side of this sport once again. Especially Didl is something special because he might be a jumper who had it anything but easy finding himself on the WC team and until now he was trying to get his way back. Generally, the luck is not with the ÖSV this year and Austrian media is criticising a lot. What these people do and risk gets forgotten. Once it’s not a good result they get criticised. That you can’t win 365 days a year shoud be clear and that’s what makes a true sportsman. They can lose and accept disappointments. I wish Didl all the best and really hope he’ll get away with a minor diagnosis. I also hope he’ll get back to his usual happy self! The best of wishes! ✨

P.S. I saw the video of his crash, it was terrible.

Because you asked so nicely…

  • This is specifically geared toward my mini-unit analyzing poetry using the DIDLS method, which the AP Language teacher as my school uses. It can be adjusted to be more generic.
  • The top three images are the long version. They opened this document (from my school dropbox) when we were in the computer lab and they used it as a guide to work on edits. They were encouraged to work in pairs to peer edit as well.
  • Helpful Hint? The bottom two images are the rubric and short version of the edit suggestions. I print four of each to a page, one on front and the other on back, so that I can staple the quarter page with both to each student’s paper. It saves paper and makes grading easier.
