NaBloPoMo '08 #12: Holy Crap, What a Day

Non-stop working is going to continue long into the night. Plus I'm feeling might sorry for both me AND my students after re-reading the chapter we'll be discussing tomorrow. What a piece of shit. Why the hell did I think it would be a good idea to read it?

I'm thinking of emailing them all and telling them we'll have a work session on the big assignment for the semester, and not to mess with the reading.

If I had actually read one of the papers that I had assigned more closely, I might have avoided a similar fiasco. Although the problem wasn't that the paper was bad, it was just inappropriate for the class, who didn't have the tools to read it. Oops!

so did you do it? I've found that students like those kinds of things - or are astonished that I tear something apart when it's awful or inappropriate. Teachable moments.

I hate when that happens. Hope you did it.
