I'm giving a unit test. I usually give a test or quiz. I don't like that
it is a free day for many classes. I don't have the time to give up a day
in A2T.

What do you do on the day before christmas break? I hate the fact that
students expect to do nothing and a lot of teachers let them do nothing. I
understand if they are in elementary school, they get to have "party" but
in high school? In my Alg2 classes, I hate to waste any class time. In my
school, the day is usually joke. Does this happen to other school? I just
hate that students think they deserve a day off and expect doing nothing.
It frustrates me so much. I am planning to do something like review. If
you have any plans please respond.
