Part I (00:45-34:00; approx. 34 minutes)
We talk a bit about classes each of us have taught or are preparing to teach. Anna's tackling a class for October, which is set up as a social networking Q&A session for parents and teens. Jason taught a class about games as a guest speaker in a for-credit library course. Rachel's deep in preparation for a class where students may or may not have topics, the professor requested specific tools to be demonstrated, and it's at 8:30 in the morning to boot! We discussed tactics she could use to keep the students engaged.
