Open Letter to Hunter’s ICIT

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Dear Instructional Computing and Information Technology Department (AKA ICIT),

Thanks for the years of supporting my efforts to publish the WORD  (despite considerable obstacles). That invaluable service, of course, includes support for my classroom instruction where much of the WORD content is developed, essentially the heart and soul of the project. You may be gone (from D:F/M, that is) but you are not forgotten by this instructor as this spring semester begins.

A 30-40P Episode Ever There Was One

Friday, May 8th, 2009

I came across this student-instructor correspondence [provided later in this post] while searching for other material on my hard drive. The Student-In-Question was an excellent writer as well as considerably bright. He was in his late 20s or early 30s.

In my class, he also was functionally indolent.

I plan to use this anecdote and others for my tome about The Four Barnacles of the Apocalypse.


A Mid Semester Report (of a Sort) for Spring, 2009

Monday, March 16th, 2009

A quickie: Not one student has whined nor snarled nor pleaded that he or she can’t or won’t do assignments because:

  • the assignments interfere with his/her internship.
  • the assignments interfere with his/her job.
  • h/s doesn’t want to do them.
