Another class watched a scary movie, and the freshmen classes just had discussions. They went well, but I just didn't have time to get that developed of lesson plans. The unfortunate part about the movie was that it was Cabin in the Woods--a really good movie. With that being said, there are boobs, which weren't in the version I ...
