Weird Semester Alert

I’m not completely in the system everywhere I’m teaching this fall yet (hazard of being an adjunct), so I can’t check the roster at one of the schools where I’m teaching… but so far I don’t have a single full class.  Okay, granted, the last-minute crowd hasn’t hit yet, and at community college, that’s a popular crowd. 

But so far I haven’t seen a single class that’s more than half full.  17 students is currently my largest class.  Now, the 4pm class, that’s got nine, but I expect that.  4 p.m. is academic death.  Also, it looks like I’ll only be using whiteboard on one campus.  Everything else is back to the old-fashioned world of chalk.

I hate chalk.  But then again, hey, it’s steady work.

Crazy, man… where are all the students?

    Nothing wrong with chalk, just keep some wet wipes and moisturizer in the car, b/c it a. transfers to your hand and b. it is REALLY drying.
    Small class means less grading, so yay!

  2. And that is definitely a good thing.

  3. Chalk… bleah. ::memories of Paul Quinn College days::

    Maybe your students took a vacation? Or are moving north to avoid storms? Or maybe they just don’t want to learn?
