    Was able to turn off the a/c and open the front door today. First time in almost a week, which is wonderful. Too bad the breeze that is coming in is smokey >.<
    Ewe. We haven't had that here in years. Thankfully.

    I like online over all if they are done correctly. I have the syllabus- my issue with posting it and getting it all done is the fact that discussions are required and if someone goes and posts all in one week, they tend not to go back. My other "issue" with this class is that it is Children's Literature and making sure they read all of those books in a timely manner so they don't get overwhelmed. So I have to teach not only various genres, characteristics of genres, awards, illustrations/art in books, but how to teach/use this information in the classroom- online. I think the hardest part is making sure they don't just go to Amazon and copy the summary of the book.

    It should be fun though and a good experience. I didn't design it the way the other teacher wanted but we couldn't find the information on ebooksf and she just had some weird ideas about what characteristics of genres actually were. So I am glad that I am doing it.
    Yep, everyone's view on what correctly is-is different and from institution to institution. It also differs in what their student bodies are capable of handling and how the student body handles education. I am gauging my opinions on institutions that garner students with an average ACT of over 30. With Big 10 schools not releasing the entire syllabus would interfere with how the whole University functions. You can't have 35,000 students and some professors not meeting their Universities expectations like my DD did last semester.

    If an institution average ACT scores are below the national average there are different challenges. If Freshman retention is the 96th percentile and graduation rate is in the 97th percentile you have focused students that are accustomed to doing their own work so my thought process of expectations for instructors in online courses likely are different. They don't have to struggle with making sure their students read all the books on time, they either read them or they don't it will play out in their grades. I'd want to put my head through a wall, I just can't wrap my brain around coping with that with college students. I'd want to send them off to trade school, plumbers earn more than a chunk of college graduates, don't have student loan debt and we all need them. In ways Germany has a point in their tiered educational system.

Most resorts that have converted have bed scarfs at the foot of the beds that adds some color to the beds.

    I'm thinking I like the whites in theory since I am a type A Germaphobic. But they need more color than they have now at POR. I wonder if they converted to the Whites before the scarves were manufactured?

    Those Purple bedspreads were relatively new. I wonder if they had seamstresses cut the best ones up and make scarfs out of them?

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Its been a good end of this week. Thursday I hung out with friends after class. Friday I got to see my grandpa. Hopefully he is coming home from rehab on Wednesday! I also got my nails done, I have a frozen theme to them. Then today my daddy dropped the ball on "keep the cruise a secret and make Mckayla thing we are going to Branson MO". Mom ran out to get some subway for lunch and while gone Beth from M.E.I travel called and dad did not pick up the phone ( I am not allowed to answer her calls). So I am going to Lou's e-ticket event and on the cruise. We are leaving August 1st, saying at Old Key West from the 1st to the 6th.Then we are moving to Pop from the 7th-9th. Then the Cruise is the 10th-13th. I am so excited

    March, I think. That is when the new school year starts for tertiary education.

    If it wasn't currently 54 degrees at Blizzard Beach I'd like to be there now eating over my fair share of the donuts.

    Happy your Grandpa is getting better.

    Woot! The secret is over. Was Dad in trouble with Mom for blowing the torture? Two weeks of Disney. Wow!

    Take a picture of the Frozen nails please.

    I thought I remembered your schools and ours being different than ours. I seem to remember UoI being back already and my niece being home for quite a while before she flew over to study in Australia. Will your niece live at her new University?
