So I'm in that state of academic limbo after having finished New Start with GEAR UP and the fall semester on the not too distant horizon.
Drafting a reflection for the semester helped me transition out of teaching mode, and outlining the presentation that I hope to present at Cs this year should hopefully get me through Terrace 1 & 2 of Dante's Mountain.
I checked 'Wrath' off the list when I submitted grades.
Avoiding Sloth might actually be what it is I'm doing in the exercise of blogging, but I should more than likely resume my research of successful outreach programs. The first tip I received: high school students respond well to non-fiction. Perhaps the less abstract material speaks to them--I believe this is in keeping with what is said about book sales.
It's a good thing tangential thinking is only a venial sin in teaching.
