Pedagogical Hulk Smash

I haven’t yelled at a student, let alone an entire class, for at least three years.

That all changed this afternoon in a perfect storm of a) numerous students who, as of week four, still haven’t bought the damn textbook, b) the really annoying habit of some Korean young women to decide that classrooms are actually impromptu beauty salons, and c) a student who literally turned around in her chair when I began class with the staggeringly difficult question of “How are you?”

Meh.  Something’s been off about this semester.  Not sure if it’s me or them.
