So basically teaching is drafts and swearing? How hard could that be?
Looks like a good tool. And I think your diagram fairly represents teaching, especially swearing at projector. I've done a lot of that this semester.
Yes, swearing is number one. What about self-loathing and drinking coffee? What about sitting in your office? What about surfing the internet?
This is pretty much my teaching mode as well. No wonder I can't breathe.
And what about blogging to avoid grading, which is what I'm doing right now.A brilliant post.I must use this Venn tool in the future.
Love this representation of teaching. Your "forgetting" comment reminded me of last week: I completely and totally forgot to prepare for a class--no novel, didn't even start said novel that *I* assigned, no thought whatsoever about the class until 5 minutes before while walking down the hall. You sure got it right: Panic!
