It's "back to school" week here at Charleston. As we all gear up for another school year, I thought I'd pose a question: Are you trying anything different this year?
A couple of my colleagues are experimenting with lap-top free zones in their 1L classes. I decided not to join the experiment mainly because we require students to purchase lap tops and it seemed inconsistent for me to then say "but not in my class." I am, however, giving a graded mid-term for the first time in Professional Responsibility. (I give my 1Ls an ungraded mid-term).
So, back to the question, are you trying anything different in your classes this year?
