My second quarter of TAing has begun. Because the English building has absolutely nothing resembling an auditorium, our classes always end up in whatever building does. In this case, it was the Chemistry building.
So my morning was a bit like this:
The Tolkien reference is appropriate, given that, during section, I asked my students to read Dylan Thomas’s “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night” and, in the last five minutes of section, showed them Aragorn’s speech at the Battle of the Morannon and asked them to think about the relationship between the two.
I think I’m going to enjoy this quarter.
