I spent some time today playing around with Slideshare, which seems like it has a lot of potential for sharing resources, especially for educators or anyone looking for inspiration or intellectual community.
But then one presentation never uploaded, and when I tried to use the embedding function to post another one here, it failed. Bah, humbug. I’m sure I’ll try again another day, but it didn’t serve my needs today. Then I realized I had submitted an essay to a magazine three days after the end of their fall reading period. I sent an apologetic/pleading email to see if I could resubmit for the winter reading period, but the frustration lingered. I spent the rest of the day trying to deal with the tidal wave of grading that has been hanging over my head the past few weeks–I graded about forty essays today and did some lesson/assignment planning as well, and now I’m wiped.
All of this meandering whining to say, I wanted to post a thoughtful teaching post to start off the week, but instead of getting thwarted again or boring you with more grading complaints, I thought I would open it to questions or suggestions.
If I were to post about anything teaching-related, what would you like it to be about? Alternately, do you have any questions for me that are at all teaching-related?
