This morning the Squirrely T.A. lectures on the relationship between power and language and his notes and outline look promising. He emailed last night to run by a few ideas and it amused me to see his nervousness; was I that nervous when I was a T.A? Probably and for good reason I don't remember. I didn't tell him that while I plan ahead for the general direction of the day, I don't write thorough outlines and lecture notes; I prefer off the cuff, as they say. I wonder if that's a bad thing.
This course is over Friday and that afternoon I leave for the conference, meaning I must hustle tonight. Off the cuff of course, but I need to prepare a few handouts on differential learning and scaffolding as it applies to language teaching and learning, or something to that effect. Something thought-provoking; I'm in the mood to be admired.
I was last night.
I wrote that. I should be ashamed.
Later, I will be.::::::::
