I have so much to do today that I’m just drowning. Here is my to-do list:
Prepare a lecture on El Salvador’s Civil War (1979-1992).
Prepare a lecture on Ana Maria Matute.
Create an assignment on Almudena Grandes’s El lector de Julio Verne.
Prepare a flyer for a colleague’s visit to our university.
Write a letter of recommendation for a student.
Grade the thesis statements and the bibliographies of my independent researchers (6 down, 4 to go).
92 80 67 55 32 21 11 homework assignments.
Answer comments in my blended course on Hispanic Civilization.
Write to a student who insists that her comparison of Bartolome de Las Casas and Hitler is valid.
There are also 12 more essays on Las Casas for me to grade but I don’t think I will get to them today.
While I’m doing all this stuff, there will be an open thread on this blog. Feel free to say, link, ask and mention anything you want.
