Just An Analog Guy Trying to Upgrade For a Digital World


Posted by Gerald on February 4, 2009

All of my classes have kicked off for the semester (I had a late start for one because it is for high school students and they didn’t finish up their semester until well into January.)  I am real happy so far.  All of my classes have at least a few people who want to talk and engage.  I do not have to drive to the other campus this semester.  Finally, I’m really finding my feet with the World Civ classes.  I am SO much happier teaching this stuff than Western civ… patterns, structures, blatant materialism and no explaining the ideas of dead white guys.  Me like!  My online history of Africa course has some really sharp students who are carrying on their online discussions with little guidance or prompting from me.

Of course, I haven’t given any major quizzes yet – that starts in the next week.
