1. a whole morning of individual meeting with my students to discuss their first drafts
2. afternoon reading group — we’re discussing Hunger Games! I have the best field…
3. more grading!
Since I’m trying to affect a casual conference environment and prevent my students from feeling like this one-on-one meeting is some kind of brutal grilling session, I decided that jeans in boots were just fine, as long as I threw on a button down to class the whole look up a bit. And you know what? I think it worked. The fact that I was eating homemade applesauce out of a mug while I conferenced may have removed any semblance of class, but at least I tried, right?
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go grade 15 more papers in two hours… and then soak my head. What a week!
