In a rush of just-got-paid-shopping last week (where I bought the copy-cat dress), I picked up this yellow skirt from Old Navy that I have been coveting for a while. I don’t typically wear a lot of yellow but there’s something sort of wonderful about the color. Particularly at this time of year when it’s spring-like (and, where I live, summer-like) but both you and your students are trapped in the worst part of the term: term papers, final exams and the grading of both.
Top & skirt: Old Navy
Silver chain necklace: LOFT Outlet
As A-Dub’s noted a little while ago, this is a time of year when the boundaries between student and teacher can seem blurry as we’re both a little loopy with busy-ness (case in point: one class today veered off into a discussion of Beckett and auto-erotic asphyxiation. Who says Modernism isn’t fun?). And while A-Dub’s responds by upping the profesh level, today I went the route of making them pay attention to me by wearing a super bright color.
Any other possible strategies for keeping student attention at this time of year? Not to mention, keeping your own attention?
