Maymester is over.

I enjoy teaching Maymester exceedingly. It is British Literature to 1750, which is the period of literature I love the most. Usually I have very good students who are at four year colleges elsewhere and only home for the summer. This summer, most of my students were actually from CC1.

However, the grades were still good. Out of this class 80% made As or Bs.

One of the reasons I so like teaching this course, is that usually the students in it do very well. They are at least sophomore students who have gotten through freshman composition courses.

Freshman classes at this college have a 50% dropout/failure rate. So students who passed both I and II are clearly motivated to finish school.
