Interior crocodile alligator

Just a couple of things right now, mostly so that I can say I actually posted today, now that it’s nine PM: First, I left the house for the third time since all hell broke loose, and had both my wife and my son with me, since we were dropping food off for both of our dads and the boy hasn’t seen either of them in too long. We talked about when the last time the three of us had been in the car together on the way up to my stepfather’s, and determined that it was very likely in February. The trip home from Chicago on our anniversary, specifically. Insane.

I beat Nioh 2 yesterday, which somehow took ninety hours— I am a completist, and wanted to do everything— despite making progress at a pretty damn solid clip. I’m tossing around writing a full review despite having raved about it in a few posts already; suffice it to say it’s a spectacular fucking game; better than the original, I think, which was a game that I absolutely loved. I have been gaming since the Atari 2600 and I think we are reaching the point where the PS4 is my favorite game console I’ve ever owned.

Tomorrow is the last day of Spring Break, which is going to be weird, since I’m still not actually going back to work in any meaningful fashion. I’m going to try and get all of next week’s lessons set up by the end of the day so I can sort of set it and forget it; we’ll see how well that works. Anybody have suggestions on how to teach stats to 8th graders remotely? Because right now … yeah, it’s gonna be kind of challenging.

I am also going to try and get something up on Patreon tomorrow. Stop laughing, goddammit.

    What I think should happen: Teachers record lectures/experiments/etc which the kids can watch at their own pace. Homework is assigned. Teachers have class time (Zoom, etc) during which the kids can ask questions about and get help with anything they didn’t understand.

    I wonder how doable that would be…

    1. That’s essentially what I’m doing. I’m available more or less 24/7 by email (and absolutely during school hours) and I experimented with holding office hours on Google Meet before Spring Break, which no one took advantage of. I mostly just need to figure out how to break it down to bite-size for the instructional part; that’s where it gets tricky.
