I rambled a bit ineffectually about revision. Exercises. No time to trade papers and try to critique or workshop. Process exercise review of topics. I felt like I lectured boringly today and was a little mean about "look it up in the book!". But on the other hand, they almost all raised their hands and said they felt confident they could write this paper.
I haven't thought of paper #3 yet. I suppose a compare and contrast. Then we launch straight into the research paper, which I haven't the faintest clue how to teach. I'll swipe a lot from JM's material. We'll do "argumentation" in the computer lab. Arguing on the net disinhibits people...well, some people.
I thought of switching my realname blog over to a new name - I could use "integry" since I like the idea and no one else has it - while "composite" is used everywhere and I couldn't get any good domains for it.
My goal tonight is to be in bed reading and ready to sleep by 10:30. All my bright sparky ideas, drained and sapped. I could be organizing papers and going through school stuff, instead of trying to force myself to blog something intelligent.
The class is still lovely but I think too exhausting and I'll be glad when it's done. I won't miss the brutal commute.
