So it's twenty eleven. Or two thousand eleven. 2011. Whatever.
A good moment to think about teaching-related New Year's resolutions (I asked a few years back. Do your remember yours?)
I'm going to cold call on students — consistently. I've been reluctant to do this in the past, and every quarter I start out doing it, and then I seem to forget. But I think cold calling sets a tone where students need to be prepared, and based on my student evaluations, students seem to want me to cold call. So I shall.
