Tomorrow I will begin teaching my first class for which I am officially the teacher of record. I am looking forward to it. I have the syllabus all figured out (and revised, and revised again, and then revised again), as well as their writing assignments. I may post both up in the next day or two if time permits.
Day one of the class will be pretty basic. First I have what I hope will be a clever and funny little presentation about me, with the hope of bringing a bit of levity to the freshmen on their first day of classes. We’ll then go over the syllabus, and I’ll field questions. Then, on Wednesday, we’re talking about canonization.
It will be a great learning experience. Surprisingly, I have already had a few emails from students, one of which was kind enough to thank me for posting the syllabus and letting me know of this student’s interest and excitement for the class. Good, that makes two of us at least!
I hope this finds you all well also, as your semesters have or will be getting underway.
