Issues and Problems:
The number of PPT slides were too many. It means my wasting time for preparation. I know that I could save my time if I measure the minutes and second for each slide and sum up those times with number of slides. This means that a rehearsal is needed. Even if a rehearsal takes time, it could be shorten total hours for preparation time. I know this, but I feel it difficult to do rehearsal when time is ticking before the class.
Since I give students a homework assignment of second drafting, I have to send the first draft back to students. But I haven’t finished proofreading yet. I apologized for the delay on BBS.
