There were a number of things that went well this semester, and others that were a hot mess. Most fell somewhere in between.
Students really liked the idea of having a choice about their projects. (That’s not the same as saying they all did their projects.)
Students liked having access to technology on a predictable schedule.
Many students gained considerable confidence in a very short time.
I learned a lot about my students as well as my subject.
I didn’t do very well at challenging the native speakers and other students who were ready for more of a challenge.
Many of the older students never got on board, despite the opportunity to make a change early on. They just stayed and made the rest of us unhappy.
I didn’t make the best use of the block scheduling.
Not all students participated as much as I would have liked.
