I got my grading done!!
A week from next Friday, my students will be turning in their first essay. Yeah. Uh-huh. That will be the end of week 10, and all they've had for the class has been busy work. Not anything really useful. And the stupid twit that designed the class chose a less-useful type of argument to try to teach.
The first paper is a causal argument. They're supposed to watch two movies--an original and a remake--then argue why the changes were made between the two versions.
Honestly, it could be a fun assignment for a classroom.
It's a shit assignment for an online class.
The next assignment is worse: a group presentation with a powerpoint over a controversial topic that isn't to include things like abortion, gun control, or the death penalty. And an individual essay over the same topic.
I can't wait until the end of the first week of May.
