I don't know if this is a vent, a favorite student email, or a bang-your-head moment (actually, I think it's all three).

Student emails me two hours before today's 8am test with the following:
Quote
Hello Mr. Mathguy,
I hope you had a great weekend! I have been working on homework 5 for the past 20 hours nonstop and I cannot comprehend how to determine <concept we covered last Monday> as well as word problems such as the one in the image attached to this email. (Note: I did almost this exact problem last Wednesday during the review session.) Could we meet to go over these concepts?

Umm, when would you have liked to meet? During the time between when you sent the email and 8am, I was getting ready for work and commuting.

I'm so confused.

Thank you so much for your replies!

I know that it is hard to say with so little info. I just wanted to get an idea of what is within the ballpark when it comes to tenured offers, specifically when it comes to baseline salary.
Thank you for reminding me of all the variables. I will keep all of it in mind (I was reminded of the tuition benefit which I almost forgot!).

Unless our criticisms are really well-grounded (as many, but not all, are) I think we're in danger of reverting as a nation to third-grade argument level.  "...but HE started it!"  "No, I didn't!  YOU started it!"  "Nuh-uh!"  "Uh-huh!"  And so forth.

I hope I'm wrong.

Have politics always been this partisan? It seemed in the old days parties were driven by region and social status. Now they are driven by ideology.

That said, this is slipping as the GOP becomes more protectionist and against free trade.

People can correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the current moment is as polarized as politics has been since prior to the Civil War.  And we know how that ended.

I'd encourage people to focus, however, not on the breakdown and the war itself, but the aftermath, particularly the post-Reconstruction era. Here's what worries me. I do believe that a good bit of what rests at the bottom of this is race. During the war and Reconstruction, racial politics continued to be extremely toxic and rancorous. The nation finally came back together again in the period between approximately 1876 and 1896, when We the People agreed that recreating and preserving a functional nation was more important than institutionalizing and maintaining the formal rights that freedmen and women had gained through emancipation.

Agree about the racism. It's shocking how little progress we have made, and how structural racism remains.

Glad to see this thread revived.

I need some cute summer shoes in which I might walk a few miles.


Okay, you're going to laugh, but I have been getting into some of the blingier styles of Birkenstocks.

Avoid ones with a thick ankle strap which. Choose fun colors. I get compliments on mine and people are surprised they are Birkenstocks.

To note:

I also have a pair just like this, but without the ankle strap, purchased in Chile.

I'm meditating with my students for a few minutes at the beginning of every class (it's relevant to the course content, so I feel as though I can get away with this). My students really appreciate it, and it helps to make them more focused during class time as a result. I might continue to do this in my classes, even when it's not directly related to the course content.

I wish I could do something like this! I have various strategies to help them focus, but have not tried meditation.

Since you mention that you have a small budget, can you co-sponsor her visit with several other departments and/or with the appropriate student services offices?  I organize a lecture series at my own poorly-funded campus, and all of our speaker events are co-sponsored.  Yes, it's a pain to manage the many small contributions that come in here and there (some as small as $50), but that's simply how we make do in places with small budgets.  

Yes, I've also done this at my school, if there was enough lead time to organize some support--however small--from other potentially interested parties on campus.  Sometimes there's not enough time, though, for instance, if you suddenly realize you have this great opportunity for this guest speaker whose work you only just heard about and who happens to be passing through the region on other business, etc.

This would be considered an insult to this filmmaker.  If you value her work, please compensate her.

At my (smallish) school we keep a small slush fund on hand for this sort of thing:  even if we're only paying the individual $200 for a guest appearance, we try to offer something, by way of defending some notion of the value of professionalism.

I wouldn't invite someone to visit a class (or some analogous task) and ask them to do it for free unless that person were a very, very good friend.  And if they were a very, very good friend, I'd try to compensate them in some other way, out of my own pocket (e.g. take them out to a fancy dinner or something--I've done this in the past when our small slush fund ran dry).

Thanks everyone.  My colleague is wonderful, and your feedback has been helpful should the matter come up again.
