It Worked

September 20, 2010

Logan is eight days into seventh grade at an all-American middle school in farm country, upstate New York.  Last week Logan said, “I never thought I’d actually be excited to go to school.  It’s kind of cool.  I’ve never had a locker before.”  After soccer practice, he attacks his homework.  He makes short work of an English worksheet, pokes holes in the assigned reading, whips off a response paragraph.  Fifteen months ago, it would have taken anguished hours to complete.

The crazy idea worked: Logan’s attitude toward school has completely reversed!  How long will it last?
