November 22 Day 259: Just a Little Jealous

I am just a little jealous of the men in my house. My husband, while having tons of grading to do, has a week long respite from teaching because of his University’s Thanksgiving- pandemic schedule. My youngest son’s high school is the same. So here I am working late into the night on Sunday, trying to keep the green-eyed monster at bay.

I intend to make class different and interesting this week. Pretty much everyone is exhausted or stressed or both. So I am pulling out a successful jigsaw activity that I like with my students in person. We are going to work, practice, and present review material in small groups. Since we can’t be circulating the room and working on physical white boards, I have set everything up in Gather. The space and virtual white boards are prepared. Fingers crossed that it works. It could be wonderful. It could be disaster. I’ll let you know tomorrow.
