I'm pretty much back to normal -- thank goodness...
My office is minimally organized and I have my syllabi copied for tomorrow...
I'll meet about 180 students tomorrow -- in four sections. Two ethics and two logic. Yes-- my math is correct, we have 50 as the course cap in ethics and 40 in logic.
no, that isn't right or good --but it is what it is... and attempts to change it have been met with stone walls all around -- because, as a department, we have a very low cost per student.... and that means the college makes cash on us.
If you look at your class of 20-30 tomorrow, be very, very grateful, as someone else is teaching a class of 50 to make the academic math work.
now, to bed -- as my first class is at 7:45 AM... and it could be a doozie, as registration was opened up late.... maybe all the really, really good students waited until the last couple of weeks in the summer to register for ethics??? yea, right.
ETA -- all my courses are at the max, except the early ethics course... who knows what will show up this week --- yikes.
