in which I take a break from teaching
This week begins my onslaught of student-led classes. For the next three weeks, I will only teach class twice out of four periods each week! I broke my students into groups of 3 and assigned each group a date for which they are to be responsible for leading class and discussion. We're reading Eating Animals
, and so the requirement is that they must address the reading in some way, but that they could supplement discussion of the reading with in-class activities if they desire.
Hoorah! What does this mean for me? Time, my friends. Time to plow through my Adrienne Rich essay (as of today: 5 1/2 pages single-spaced down!), flesh out term paper ideas for Gender and Language as well as Victorian Lit, and to BAKE. I would like to send R some more cookies, and I would like to have things like banana bread and muffins to snack on at home.
Speaking of baking, I made a pie yesterday:
AND I don't have anything to grade until Thanksgiving break! Less than 3 weeks until I'm back in Austin, eating tacos at Amaya's, walnut scones at Quack's, and pear-grilled cheese sandwiches at Kerbey Lane! (Important note: besides eating, I intend to gratuitously hold hands with that boyfriend of mine who I haven't seen in almost two months).
