Day 88: Final Exams start

The calm before the storm.  Once finals start in our department, we have agreed that we don’t help students who haven’t taken the exam yet because of the “sharing” that goes on between exams.  We used to have students come in as ask for help on specific questions that were actually on the final.  So we put a ca-bash on that practice.  That leaves us time to grab a nice cup of hot tea and plan for the beginning of the second semester.  Once an exam is given, I can actually have uninterrupted time to grade thoughtfully and consistently.  Yay for our policy.  What do you do to thwart stress during finals week?P1050536
