Yesterday was a lazy, tv watching, napping day. Today we have been “working” and having Google Meets/Zoom with our students and colleagues. I’m about to have a virtual union meeting today and a virtual Happy Hour. Thursday sure is a busy day!
John has to have “office hours” every day for one hour. So far this week, he had 3 students “attend” on Monday, 0 on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 1 student today. Now that the students know that not doing the work will not lower their grade, we’ve seen a decrease in participation.
I had 8 students “attend” my class this morning. I’m only obligated to one day a week. The only question one student had for me: “Do you think Carole Baskin killed her husband?” Seriously, they then spent the next 10 minutes discussing Tiger King! Thankfully, I had watched it and knew something about it. Not a single question about academics! The 8 students wanted to let me know they miss me and that they like having the meetings so they can talk to someone other than their family. I’ll take it!
Jena, these are my notes/list from my meeting. Definitely not Bullet Journal worthy! And if they look like they were taken on the back of scratch paper, they were! When I do what needs to get done, I’ll throw them away.
