Today was the 1st day of going back to school. I had an 8am Written communication class. There are about 20 of us? I'm not really sure as I did not do a head count. I might be the oldest in the class but not by much. I could tell that there were some of us more mature types in the class.
One of the things that the teacher has us do was break into small groups of 4 and 5. In my little pod ( That's what they are called in class ) there was one girl that was already making me cranky. I can't abide a mumbler and besides that, she was a soft talker! I told her to speak up. Next week I might tell her to stop mumbling. I found myself leading the small group. I think it was 1. I'm older. 2. I paid a lot of money to learn and I want to learn, so if I have to be bossy so that we get the job done, so be it.
In the pod we had to discuss what hybrid meant and explain in a complete sentence how it applied to the class. This is because our class is a hybrid. We meet 2 days a week in a room and then we will also have online meetings and doing group projects online.
The 1st hour went by fast. When I got home I did my homework and then took a nap. The homework was that we had to go online and do a self introduction to the class. Then we will have to read each others intro and ask question and reply. It's all part of written communications.
