Back to School . . . .


After a couple of weeks "off" from school, we are back today with online and my two "live" classes.  I think this will be fun. My 8:00 is an LT 201--this is actually the third semester of the 4-semester series.  I will have 4 or 5 students, and they are wonderful students (our daughter) will be in the class-she certainly qualifies as "wonderful."  I also have a summer LT 101 course--there is only 1 student in that course. I have send her an email telling her the time and place, but I have not heard back from her. It will be interesting to see if she remains in the course. I have taught like this before--one-on-one.  It's not easy, but it does work well, particularly for a student who needs the help.
The boys are at work at their various tasks for the summer;  James Martin is learning the ropes of library work at the college (it's hard to say "at the university") and John boy is still doing just fine at "the Chicken house." We spent Thursday and Friday in hot pursuit of fine-tuning the online courses. That was discouraging on a lot of fronts, largely because we won't be teaching them again after the summer term.  But that's the point--we ARE teaching them over the summer term. 
I will report back soon, dear readers, with an update one everyone's reading and school work.
