The Classroom, 3/27

These last nine weeks have left me with little to say. Teaching three different classes a day, each for 90 minutes, has worn me down. Not as much as I was expecting it would, but enough that at the end of the day I'm so tired of thinking that I the idea of writing a post fatigues me.

My classroom is getting closer to the environment that I for a long time sought. It's a place with buzz, with energy. It's a place students seem to like coming to. I've made some real strides instructionally, both with and without technology. Perhaps you'll enjoy this photograph of my desk. It's a good snapshot of the eccentric academic forum I've been able to create. Today I received the latest gadget, a document camera (I swear, it's there on my desk) to get me even closer to where I want to be.

The only thing missing now is a laptop at every students' fingertips. But that, I guess, will just have to wait. But perhaps it won't wait for long.
