Friday morning I wore the “super-duper” professional outfit that I had planned to wear on Thursday, but didn’t. I wanted to wear something that looked nice, but that was also comfortable. And, to be honest, I didn’t shave my legs so pants was a good option.
Class was good; we covered the chapter on organizational strategies and informative speaking. My Friday class is just now getting to this chapter. I covered it earlier in the semester in my T/TR class, which I think made a little more sense, but hindsight is always 20/20. For my Friday class, it ended up being a nice review. Some of the things in the chapter they knew and were spot on, but then there were a few things that had slipped their mind. So, all in all, it was good.
After my students took their quiz over last weeks chapters and I lectured over the two chapters for this week, we had a little bit of time left. I was able to show them some video examples of informative speeches. I was glad that I was able to do this because next week we have 3 chapters on the syllabus to go over and I am pretty certain that there won’t be any time left to spare. For my T/TR class, however, we will be watching video examples on Tuesday since we only have one chapter to cover.
It’s a little difficult having a different schedule for each class, but when I was planning the syllabus there were reasons why I chose to have different schedules. I am pleasantly surprised that my Friday class is doing so well. During the Spring semester my Friday class struggled a lot with the material. That is the driving force behind the reasons why there are a different number of speeches in my Friday class and my T/TR class. But, this group of students is on the ball and seem to be taking the time to read the chapters and do their homework. Only time will tell.
What do you think? Do you like this outfit? Does it say professional or waiter to you? I also debated with the shoes. Originally, I had planned this outfit in my head with my black booties, but then I thought about my black oxford-esque shoes. Ultimately, I chose these gray and black shoes because the heel height was right and I thought they looked nice.
