I finished my Comp I textbook, and uploaded it to the enhanced course site last week. And I thought that was all, because last I'd checked, there were more than 10 students in both courses. I guess...either some dropped, or our new university president, in all his infinite wisdom, decided the "make" number had to be higher.
All I know is that, instead of my 8:00 class in the same room as my 9:00 class (leaving me with a two hour block after class for office hours) I have a 9:00 and a 10:00 class, both in the same room. I can either stick with the two hours after class (getting home an hour later) or I can go in for an office hour before class (one that will NEVER be used, and that the students will complain is too early).
Beyond that...the course is a Comp II course. Which I thought I'd have all fall semester to revise and rewrite the book for.
I still have three weeks before classes start, so I can go ahead and rewrite the textbook, but I may not have time to do anything else productive before then, where writing is concerned.
Is anyone interested in beta reading a Comp II text? It's all persuasive/argumentative writing, where the Comp I course is expository writing edging toward persuasive.
