So I’ve been reading some of the latest posts AND the replies.
It has been my goal and intention to take a summer break from academics and just hang with y’all sparingly on The Lounge with whimsical posts, but one of the replies caught my eye. It reads:
I keep waiting for these posts to turn a corner and contribute in a more positive way to the collegial dialogue that the Harold Lounge is designed to foster.
So, to Erica and all of you who are coming to The Lounge for collegiate dialogue, I offer the following thoughtful question(s):
If you are teaching this summer, do you feel you are still getting a ‘summer break’ from the academic rigors of the Fall and Spring semester? Why do you elect to work during the summer?
If you are not teaching this summer, what are you doing during your ‘summer break’ to prepare for the academic rigors of the Fall and Spring semester? Why do you elect to not work during the summer?
I’ll leave it at that for now. Spellin an grammatically errers permitted (unless your name is Merriam or Webster or Oxford). Anonymity encouraged.
Yes, this is my summer take on the Tuesday Teaching posts. Looking to foster what the reader/s want/s.
I’ll address the other/secondary issues when my summer break permits. Stay cool peeps!
