We are a week and a half into this adventure. I’d say it’s going smoothly. Mostly.
When they’re not going smoothly, it’s tricky. How do you know when a student isn’t doing their work for the same reasons they didn’t do homework before the pandemic or if there’s problems that are actually preventing them from doing their work. Accountability is difficult to maintain.
Today was the second Wednesday where I checked in with my classes via Google Meet. It went well. It was good to see their faces. These meetings are minimally academic and mostly for morale. And that’s a good thing, I think.
