It's Staff Training Time!

"Has anyone here ever had to make a very important decision? Please raise your hand if you have."

"Everyone? That's great. Please take 3 or 4 minutes and write a paragraph describing the decision you made."

"OK. Maria, would you please tell us about your decision? How about you, Kai?"

"We're going to read a poem now in which the writer makes an important decision. It's called
The Road Not Taken, and it was written by Robert Frost."

That may sound like a "motivation" and a "do now," but it isn't. It's called "triple A." It was all part of a riveting presentation given in my region by various 6-figure members of Klein's army.

The gist of it is this--we're no longer doing "motivation" and "do now." We're doing "triple A." These people are geniuses. They certainly deserve to be paid more than lowly teachers like us. I, for one, could never have come up with such a concept.

The presentation, consisting entirely of what you read above, took three hours. You can imagine how thrilled we must have been.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what they come up with for Election Day.
