It's a good time for everyone (you AND me) to take a look at what we have accomplished so far and to ask if there is anything we can do to be more successful second term.
For you, that might mean doing more homework (or doing it on time), or coming for extra help, or studying more for tests / quizzes. For me, it might mean changing how I present information, or how I run the class, or how I assess your understanding of material.
Here's to a successful second term!
By the way, don't feel TOO sorry for me. I have a good reward for my hard work this weekend... two fairly epic concerts on Sunday and Monday night. Do you know / recognize these two gentlemen? They may be old but they are about as big as music stars can be. Thanks to Bijan for scoring me tickets to "The Boss" (the guy on the right).
