Woo-hoo! Perfect score.

Had to share this: I was just going through last semester's student course evaluations and got the most pleasant surprise.

(Aside: We got our evals back late this semester, because the new policy is that the Department's secretaries need to type them all up before the prof's can see 'em; evals are anonymous and go to the sec's first... anyway.)

So: I just got my first perfect set of student evaluations! Every student in my English 562: Advanced Technical Writing course last semester ranked all 14 aspects of the class a perfect 5.0. W00t! And I got an almost-perfect for my English 564: Advanced Technical Editing course, with only one student ranking two elements at 4. Wowee!

Students in my English 362: Foundations of Technical Writing - required for several majors rather than elective for the Advanced courses - ranked every element of the course except for textbook [natch] over 4.5, so it would seem that my students feel I do a pretty good job. This is the best way to start the semester!

wow, that's great.
Yes, do not overthink it... you've done this from inate talent and so save the tech-think for the course itself.

I'd love to try technical writing. some thing about that just appeals to both sides of my brain.

Thank you! Yes, it appeals to both of my brain-sides, too.
