In order to ensure that I can remain available to help the students at Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas, I have accepted an adjustment to my teaching schedule for the upcoming term. Instead of the schedule I initially report having for the term, I will be teaching two sections of ENGL 1302: Literature & Composition–Sections 02 and 03, MWF 1000 and 1100, respectively. While I would have liked to have been able to teach the History of the English Language class, outside factors have made that option currently unavailable; those students who signed up for the class specifically to take it with me should be assured that qualified faculty will handle the course.
I apologize for the adjustments that my shift in schedule will require and hope that I will continue to be able to be a benefit to the Mountaineer students.

[…] Among others, I think I will move final papers back a bit in the semester, offering me more time to assess them and students more time to revise them (if they wish; not all do, although I did have a fair number of revision requests during the term this time). And I think I will adjust the manner in which I scaffold projects; while I will likely be doing away with peer review (as noted in the earlier report), the idea of my reviewing papers ahead of time remains a good one. I do not know if I will be doing multiple reviews, however; I do not know if I can afford to do so in terms of time involved. Larger projects, though, will likely benefit from having sections reviewed in advance. I will see how it plays out next time I teach a class that makes use of such projects; the Spring 2017 term does not look like it will. […]
