I'm having extended office hours today, and it's been hopping. I've lost count of how many students have come in, but I'm probably onto my toes, or nearly.
A few have come in for specific help, some for reassurance, and one who's lost. The lost student started later than zie might have on the assignment, and it shows.
I was hoping to get some grading done, but there have been too many students in and out. I did read two grad student pieces, and sent each an email response.
And now to some serious grading. I have just over another hour of office hour scheduled, but I think it's slowing down. There's a short break right now, anyway.
Is your semester an uphill finish, a group sprint, or a sprint from the breakaway?
(And yes, the Giro was streaming in my office quietly, which caused nearly every student to ask if I understood the Italian commentary. I don't get much, but I get names and the occasional important words.)
