Dr. SquareState, he addresses me properly. I'm in your X class. I have an opportunity to go to
We speak for 10-15 minutes until the floodwaters of students needing my signature on something or other washes in. I explain, and he takes notes. He asks questions. I suggest he register for independent study and get some credit for what he is doing. We speak of target groups and structures of instruction and I literally see the jigsaw puzzle pieces of what he's been learning in X class falling into place.
He thanks me by email in the evening for giving him so many good ideas for material to read.
If I get one of these a semester, I can tolerate the rest. Well, with the exception of the 5 snowflakes I am currently grilling on the grounds of turning in Wikipedia articles as their own work....
