Then one day you’re gonna wake up and realize that ‘I don’t love him anymore.’
So sick of people saying Kurt doesn’t love Blaine. This is how he loves. It’s no romantic gesture involving singing and falling rose petals, but this is it. Kurt is a man of his word.
For Blaine, love is actions. For Kurt, love is a state of being. Neither is more right or wrong than the other, but there is an inherent dissonance between the two that they both still need to work on.
(And I think they are working on it, but they aren’t done yet.)

I LOVEEEE THIS.
I don’t know why, but I am obsessed with the evolution of literature through history. I love love love it. Last year when I taught English 11, I was able to work closely with the American History teacher to simultaneously track lit movements with their corresponding historical framework and oh my WORD I absolutely adored it.
Fast fact: If I could ever create am English elective to teach, it would—without question—be Modernist American Literature. Swoon <3
Does anyone use “Grammar Journals”? Essentially, on the left side of a notebook, you take grammar notes. On the right sides, students are able to try out the grammar rule/topic in some sort of a writing prompt or activity.
I like it and want to use it next year. I could also have my sixth graders glue things into the notebooks (hand outs/guided notes).
always reblog because best crossover in history
it makes me laugh when people say ‘you’re going to look back on this in 5 years and cringe’ like it’s something bad or even something that can be avoided, i’m going to feel way worse if 5 years from now i look back at who i am right now and don’t feel…
