Assessment Number Three

In some ways, the morning class got a much better lesson than the class that Ms. N. came to see and assess. I actually managed to get through the entire stock market simulation of the 1929 crash, but both ways it felt rushed and complicated. I can't say that for when Ms. N. was there. I'm sure the point was made with them, and they have at least a vague understanding of the dangers of buying on margin, but I can't help but think that it needs to be simplified somehow. That, or it goes over the course of several classes, through the entire unit, say.

That being siad, I was really happy with the results I got from Ms. N., and I feel like she felt it worked, so I'll take it as a good thing that I can find things to do to make it better. I'm really looking forward to having my own class—I think that it'll be tough as hell, but I know I can do it and I can't wait to try.
