It’s a Sign of the Times

So this is what it takes for me to have a moment to blog: my students taking a one-hour exam. What do I want to say in this golden moment?

This: When I think of the spring term, in which my teaching load will be greatly reduced from the lunatic schedule I’m on now, I most look forward to writing on the Bible. Right now, I’m teaching all the time, so in my brain it’s all-pedagogy-all-the-time. Great, but by now there’s an imbalance in the Force: after a summer and fall of thinking and writing about teaching, I have a yen for wide-open Bible spaces. (And maybe brush off my Egyptian. Wide open Bible and Egyptian spaces.)

Will next term be different for you in some way? And how will it?

  1. Though no longer in ‘formal’ education, I still think of my life in terms, Fall, Spring, Summer. It allows for at least a couple days of breathing space and re-evaluation… or maybe Bible space and Egyptian? No, for me, it’ll just have to be Bible space. I’ll leave the Egyptian to the professionals.

  2. I vote for Egyptian! By yourself Allen’s grammar and rock the Middle Egyptian!

  3. I missed the “u” in buy. Small typo at 5:30 in the morning.
