The Teaching Front
First exams went out today and came back. Given that students are probably reading this blog, I can’t really get into them.
Other than to say this.
I am very disappointed.
Essay performance was abysmal. Since I still have classes which are slated to take exams, I will hold off on the After Action until all exams have been sent out.
Part of the problem seems pretty clear to me. They aren’t taking notes, they aren’t there, they are texting and they aren’t paying attention.
Joint Writing Project Number – 02
Research Project Number – 06
I’ve got a possible short story project I am working with a peer who will remain, unless they chose to do other wise, nameless. It is a story I have been itching to write for quite some time but I don’t have the cultural knowledge to write it.
It features a research element and a writing element, thus the dual designation.
RPN – 06 is separate from the currently ongoing RPN – 05.
Aside from the exams, it was not a bad day. The weather was warm, the physical training session good, and I had a first class dinner with the Woman I Love at the Pod.
What more could one ask for?
So it goes.
