I'm just going to try to be nicer. And I'm having less points in the first two weeks, so students have a little adjustment time. Maybe grade a little easier? That's probably not something I should admit to.


If I can achieve #1, then I'll be happy.


I've been very discouraged about the completion rates in (especially) my first-semester comp. classes, so I guess my resolutions have to do with being more aggressive about intervening when students start to fall behind, either because of poor attendance or failing to turn in work. To try to combat the procrastination/writer's block that can lead to students not turning in work, I plan to have students do more in-class writing.
