This threatens to be the most extreme academic year yet:
MAIT 401 1 unit
Introduction to Inquiry
SSTE 215 3 units
Foundations of Secondary Education
SSTE 346 3 units
Teaching and Learning I
River of Words 3 units
Course Release to work with the Center for Environmental Literacy
SSTE 254 1 unit
Foundations of Adolescent Literacy
SSTE 356 4 units
Teaching and Learning II
Seminar I 3 units
First-year seminar course
This will mean that I will have June 23 – August 15 or so off this summer. Of that time, I am already going to Philadelphia for a week, Sri Lanka for the Vandu Paaru program for three weeks, and DC for a week. Once I return, I will have to immediately plan for Foundations of Secondary Education, which will be subject to significant revisions. I will be teaching 6 different courses, no repetitions in preps. Two of those will be new courses. I haven’t had a year yet that I haven’t taught a new course, if not several. My first year, of course, all of my courses were new. In my second year, I taught the MAIT 404 Capstone course and then the Foundations of Adolescent Literacy course.
At least, I am not serving on as many committees.
I am supposed to be cutting back. I am not doing well on that.
