Smackdown (x2) | 06/10/09
Two days ago in class I laid a smackdown. A smackdown of dumb mistakes. Not surprisingly, the day after those errors did not repeat themselves. Shocking how that seems to work.
Unfortunately I got my own version of a smackdown yesterday with my first observation. We spent too much time part-writing and I didn't spend enough time correcting new resolutions. Both of those are true.
I appreciated the vast majority of the feedback and this morning I started implementing the changes. Maybe it's because a good part of my day is spent as Business Mike but if you have six weeks to do new things and they were C+/C students coming in and halfway through you have B+/B I think it stands to reason that the methods are, at least partially effective. Whatever, I certainly have a lot of things to improve upon but what I can absolutely, absolutely guarantee is this: their improvement is amazing and it brings me to joy to see it, even if I'm the only one (for now).
