I'm catching up on grading student papers. I'm teaching a practicum course, where students are in "live" placements, practicing interpreting and everything which goes with that - but there is no Deaf client/consumer. Each week the students turn in journals - which provide them a place to reflect on their process, give me a picture of what's happening in their placements (I can't be in all of the placements all the time, of course), and it's a place for us to dialogue about their process.
I got behind with the medical situation.
So I'm grading. And grading more. And getting caught up little by little.
Tonight I was inserting a comment for a student and hit save. Then went back to review what I wrote before submitting it back to her.
Thanks to the word program's spell/grammar check, some things stick out.
Including a new word I invented. But I like it. It actually describes the student's dilemma very well and it's a word I could use.
Of course I changed it to the word I intended. But I think I'll save this word for my own future use. Don't be surprised if it shows up in a story!
My new word?
Fustered. (Yes, I meant flustered. But I really like fustered!)
