First Day of Plato Class

Things went quite well today in both sections.  I presented the parameters of the class, let them know that college writing was going to be something quite different from their high school classes, and introduced the technologies that keep my classroom paper-free.  I never can tell which students if any are going to drop out and seek out smoother waters in another class, but this group didn’t seem inclined to bolt.  When we reconvent Thursday, I suppose we’ll see.

  1. I asked them if anyone was planning on dropping. No one moved. I said, “Feel free. I don’t know you yet, and it’ll be one fewer paper for me to grade.” They laughed nervously.

  2. That’s cold, man. That’s cold.

  3. And no one dropped after all! NUTS.
