|Gold Five: Just before becoming space dust|
As Gold Five says in Star Wars: Episode IV, teachers want their students to "Stay on target!" during these distracting days. I for one remember, though, that soon after uttering those words, Gold Five was turned to space dust.
Instead, maybe taking the Luke Skywalker approach is more appropriate (at least it was in the movie). Pay attention to the things distracting students, trust your instincts, and learn to "let go." For example, if students are staring at a beautiful day outside, take them outside. Find the distraction and try to work it into your lesson. You may find that the challenge of the approaching summer vacation offers a chance to inspire creativity and end the year having instilled one last attempt to develop a life-long love of learning.
