agreed - Republicans practice the politics of resentment, and it pays off. It is always easier to get people to sit on their duffs and have a Two-Minute Hate than to get the same people to feel enough hope to do something constructive. For a very large percentage of people, the pleasure of hate is greater than almost any other human pleasure, including sex.
Hi HelenI have to confess I don’;t take in homework. What I do do, though, is set a piece of writing every week as homework and then students bring it in the following week or whenever they like to read out for constructive feedback. I do take stories home most weeks as well though because not everyone wants to read out. These get quite a brief written crit. But yes it’;s hard work.
