Monday afternoon

three weeks left in the term means I’m listening to 150 3 minute talks about future plans or a “dream” job/career. While the students speak, I sit in the back of the classroom and write a short evaluation. Later, this can help me determine their score(grade) for the course. At my university a numerical score between 70 and 100 is my choice.
One class has 22 students-all first year Phd students in the agricultural sciences.Another class has 45 students-MA candidates. Computer error admitted 45 students instead of the usual 30. Trying to give everyone a chance to speak every week is a challenge.
