NMPSPE Film Festival, Day LIII: EOC + Evaluation = The Bell Curve Seventh Seal

I’ll be even more brief than this short scene from Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal” (1957).  The character Death saws down the tree holding an actor who is first blithely unaware, then unable to argue his way out.  His upcoming performance at the All-Saints Festival is cancelled on “account of death.”  Teachers, as we administer our own destined for one-quarter bell curve-ordained deaths via EOCs this week, grab that tree…or, perhaps, consider a hasty unplanned descent before it all comes crashing down.

Me, and a few hundred/thousand of my teaching colleagues are in varying states of climbing down.  Some are choosing well-timed jumps down to land on Death himself.  We call this option the “Rule of 75.”
