“Hey, Good Lecture”

I went over the Writing Process in my Comp I class.  Using Powerpoint, I followed this script that I wrote years ago when I was procrastinating on writing on my dissertation.  I revealed that to my class.  Nah, teaching isn’t hard — anybody can go up there and blather on for an hour or more.  It’s creating the environment so that folks LEARN — now, that’s the hard part.

Which is why I had to hide REAL HARD my smile when a young African-American man, in baseball cap, over-sized jersey, and saggy jeans, came up to me after class ended and said, “Hey, good lecture.”

“You’re welcome… and thank you.”
