We’re barreling toward the end of the semester, which always feels closer once Thanksgiving’s over. As the Brits don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here, I’m in the midst of doing mid-semester evaluations with students this week A) To remind them that the semester really is more than half over and B) To try to suss out what is and isn’t working in our class.
Today at The Junto, we’d like to ask you, our readers, to reflect on your teaching so far this semester, and to encourage people to use the comments to share ideas and troubleshoot.
What are you teaching, and what’s working? Have you read any new books or articles that have gone over particularly well? Things you’ve read that you’re planning on teaching in the near future?
And what’s not working? Why do you think that’s the case, and what will you do next time to try to fix it?
We look forward to an engaging discussion. Have at it!
