Writing assessment project... the bulk of the essay reading is complete, now we just need to read the "tie breaker" essays... maybe 20 of them.
My feminist epistemology paper. I think it is good and could get better -- but I'm letting it sit for a month or so before I take one last look at it.
I left myself a clean copy of the most recent version and a checklist of stuff to look at later -- essentially notes to myself in a couple of forms -- so that when I go back I don't have to remember what I was doing when I left it to simmer on the back burner.
#1 My teach-a-thon... two semesters, no breaks --
My semester started a few days before everyone else's when I met my debate team in Rocky Mountain state.
My spring break was two days in Red State -- a long nap and a pedicure in my pjs doesn't really count as a Spring Break.
Between Spring and First Summer session, BNCC seems to think that a weekend is sufficient...
Add to that a kind of time consuming search for adjunct philosophy faculty, and the result is a pretty darned long time of teaching...
#2 My time as a commuter -- we are moving to within 5 minutes of BNCC, and not a moment too soon. I spent an extra 30 minutes stuck in traffic today on the highway, all due to a relatively minor car accident -- gack....
For the next few days I'm going to catch up on housework, go to water aerobics and have some fun. No serious academic stuff for me -- my brain needs a break.
