Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being, and in the hidden part You will make me know wisdom. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit.
Psalm 51:6, 12
This morning I went to a workshop at Clark called Supporting Student Writing in Academic Disciplines, by Nancy Penrose. Although I read a wordy description of the workshop (perfectly in keeping with the title), I hardly knew what to expect.
When we arrived at Clark, the room reserved was the same room I took the math for idiots in last year first semester. Prof. Higgins expressed shock and dismay at the prospect of sitting for three hours in the cramped chair/desk combinations, although I felt no pity for her. A few people, including my favorite Clark professor, Prof. Robertson, trickled in and produced a crowd numbering between 20 and 25.
