The Sunday Post #20 – Weekly Wrap-up

Welcome to my weekly wrap-up post. Thank you to Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting the Sunday Post each week. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.

This week has been pretty good! Teaching was good, and I gave my class their first test by me on Thursday. They all did quite well, so I’m happy about that. My own classes at Uni started up again, too, and I have this really cool project to work on for one of my MA seminars! The class is called Romance and its Remediation, and it’s the continuation of a class from last semester. For assessment, we have to make our own web-site or blog *fist-pumps* and do a critical analysis of a novel with a medievalist romance theme, and compare it with a graphic novel or TV show or video game made in the same universe as the novel or series. So I’ve started working on a web-site about Outlander *swoons*.

    • Yes, I’m so relieved teaching is really what I want to do! I was a little afraid there for a while, since I quit a pretty good job to go back to studying again.
      Have a lovely week yourself, Melanie 🙂

  1. Oh that must have been exciting to give them a test and then see how they did. I am glad to hear your teahcign went well, I hope you enjoy it :). I haven’t read or seen outlander, but it sounds like a good topic for that assessment!

    I hope you have a great week!

    • They did so well, too 🙂 Their level of English is good, and they’re all motivated, so that makes my job a lot easier.
      Thanks for stopping by Lola 🙂

    • I do, I’m wondering if I’ll be able to do something with the audiobook as well, because that’s a different media, too, right?
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    • They are all good students, so I’m happy they did well, and that it means I’m doing well, too 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Michelle.

    • Yeah, it’s not that which will be a challenge, it’s to make it Uni-level when I do my criticism 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Laurel-Rain.

  2. Good for you, glad the teaching is going well! And your project sounds way fun- I love it when one can mix a hobby or interest with school needs. 🙂 Go Outlander ha ha. I wish I would have had some SF/ F classes in college, that would have been nice.

    Have a great week and enjoy your reads!

    • Yeah, that one professor really likes to keep things interesting 🙂 And can you imagine I have a very valid excuse for mooning over the TV show now?
      Thanks for stopping by, Greg.

    • I’m glad it’s going well with teaching as well, Laura 🙂 And it’s great that I can mix fun with work for that class.

  3. That’s so exciting that you’re a grad student in English Lit. I’m a grad student in Library Science right now, but I kind of want to go back for my master’s in English too; I just don’t know what specialization. I did literature as a undergrad. Anywhoo…that blog assignment sounds awesome!
