To all of our academic friends whose Labor Day looks like this:
Be sure to step away from the lesson planning, grading, or researching to enjoy the holiday. I found this delightful scenery in Oklahoma City this past spring. I was feeling saturated by information while attending a conference and took a break to go for a walk at the nearby botanical gardens. A brief respite from the intellectual rigor of academics was all I needed to finish out the rest of the day feeling brighter and ready to learn. Whether you spend all day picnicking with family and friends or just an hour or two reading a good book and sipping your favorite coffee, may you flourish at work tomorrow because of restful moments you experience today.
Stay tuned for a full-length post tomorrow on creating an active learning experience in the classroom.
