I took a real hard look at the syllabus and decided that student teaching is already going to be fairly demanding without another course in the mix. So I dropped MAT 674, the Masters level class on Differentiation. I feel confident that I am making the right decision.
Additionally, I am pretty sure that I will not be able to keep up daily posting during student teaching. My goal is to get a post up a week during my first placement and see how it goes. I may re-evaluate during my second placement.
