One Shining Moment

Students in one of my classes handed in an assignment today. It's a pretty quirky assignment, so one of the things we did afterwards was talk about whether it was effective and whether the preparation we'd done for it in class was too much, too little, or about right.

After class, a student who hasn't had much to say or been really participatory stopped to talk to me, and said that s/he had learned something really valuable from our discussion.

I'm going to be holding on to that thought for a couple days.


  1. Yay, indeed! I had a beautiful moment in class today, in a semester where those have been rare. And like you, I'm just going to hold that in my head for a while.
