there are other things I could do. finish writing up and sending grades to those who presented on Monday. figure out a schedule for the student getting an incomplete to be finished by the beginning of next semester. finish the spreadsheet for the grades so that they will all be calculated once the individual grades are entered. grade their response papers.
I suppose one or two of those could constitute today's work. it's all gotta be done in a week anyway. I mean the art institute actually gives us till january 3 to get the grades in to the registrar (laxest deadline ever!) but I told them I would have their final grades ready and emailed to them by this time next week.
maybe warming up by finishing presentation grades and response paper grades would be a good thing.
