So, this week is Finals Week. I have two Final Exams, two papers, and grading of my students Final presentations, so my posting will be spotty this week. Just an update on why I may not be posting on regular schedule this week, but I will do my best.
I don’t usually have Final Exams, but this semester it worked out where I final exams in both of my classes. I will actually be studying for my Spanish Final once I finish writing this blog post. Both Finals have a take-home component to them, but my Spanish also has an in-class Final Exam component to it as well.
I’m in the middle of grading my students papers as well. I usually have them already done, but I added in revisions so I’m working my way through those who have turned in their revisions as well as grading Final Presentations. I intend to rework the way I do revisions as I feel that while it is a good opportunity, it just didn’t work out well with the timing of my other classes/classwork.
This is where I really fell down this semester. I still have time and my deadline isn’t until tomorrow, so I should be able to get them done, but I will be rushing far more than I really needed to do so. Much of this came because the papers were due at a time that was super stressful (when the phone went down) and all my attention shifted to getting the phone fixed when it should have been on my school work. Not my finest hour, but it is what it is, so I just have to get it done, somehow.
