As my freshmen students have decided to check out and it gets more and more difficult each day to keep them engaged, I had them write about super powers. I shared this:
If I could have any super power, I’d want to have the ability to fly. I’d spend hours soaring like eagles just to feel what it’s like. I’d fly to things like graduations so it didn’t take so long to get there and I could stay for cake and to visit. I’d fly off to meet a friend for dinner or coffee or a movie so I could see my friends more often.
I’d also fly to places I’ve always wanted to see or want to go back to and enjoy more. Places
like: Paris, Ireland, Scotland, the national parks, DC, and the Macinack Bridge to name a few.
Teleportation? This would also be a sweet super power if you didn’t want to sight see and you’d have the element of surprise. But, wouldn’t want to read people’s minds-too many stray thoughts I don’t want to see!
