It turns out that my students didn’t understand how to read the schedule I had posted online. They were confused about whether I was going to assign that reading that day or if it was due that day. I’ll give them that. Starting a semester is confusing. Me getting used to them, them getting used to me. Me getting used to teaching again, them getting used to learning again. It is a dance and one that will hopefully go more smoothly from here on out. I just have to keep remind myself that I am leading, so I set the tone. They are watching me, and I need to give grace. I also need to give instruction. I think it will be just fine.
