I’m sorry I missed Grammar Wednesday yesterday; the combination of break, the holidays, and my family all being home has conspired to throw me off my game a little (but in a good way). I’ll pick it back up next week, I promise.
I’ve been thinking about my upcoming classes and about how I’m going to run my hybrid composition course this term. I’ve had hybrid classes before, but I don’t like teaching them; the online component, I think, is never what I want it to be and I’m trying to figure a way to change that. I want the students to have to actually, you know, work, but I don’t feel I’ve got much of a command of the resources available to me on the internet to make proper use of them. This is what’s been occupying my mind lately; trying to come up with ways to use the incredible amount of material and content available on the internet to make my composition class rich, challenging, and interesting.
I hope you’re all having a lovely midwinter. I’ll be writing here more regularly now; do keep coming back.
