Nor again will

"Babylon Revisited" is often credited for being one of Fitzgerald's greatest short stories. As Professor Jackson Bryer states on a web site interview, "[It combines]

    Charlie as the Victim of Circumstance in F. Scott Fitzgerald's Babylon Revisited The story's protagonist, Charlie Wales, is less a victim of bad luck than of circumstance, both socio-economic and personal. Charlie does not deserve Marion's continued denial of custody of his daughter, but the story is less about what Charlie does or does not deserve than how easily one's life can spin out of control due to unforeseen circumstance. Marion and Charlie dislike each other on a visceral level.

    For the purpose of anonymity I will refer to the teacher that I observed as Mr. Jones. He is a resource teacher at County High School.  The class that I sat in was comprised of students in grade levels 9-11. Mr. Jones began the lesson checking in with the students seeing how they were doing.  (I believe getting a feel for the climate of the class is good way to start.) Next, he discussed what they were going to be working on essentially providing an outline for the class period.  Third, he checked
