STUDENT1: This essay is kicking my ass @toofrank
toofrank: @STUDENT1 That's why I told you to start writing it two weeks ago.
STUDENT1: @toofrank it's not even the time, but the ideas! I'm lacking. But yes, I should've listened.
toofrank: @STUDENT1 The essay is really about understanding other people's ideas (I'd be more specific, but it depends on which you chose).
toofrank: @STUDENT1 It's not about YOUR ideas. It's about your ability to critically engage with someone else's ideas.
STUDENT1: @toofrank Both Bazin and Bonitzer were so eloquent and insightful, I almost feel unworthy trying to synthesize what they were saying.
STUDENT1: @toofrank But alright. I'll keep that in mind. BTW I'm doing question 2
toofrank: @STUDENT1 Ha! Suck-up ;-) But yeah; they're both famous for a reason.
toofrank: @STUDENT1 Question 2 = surface vs. underbelly. You're more than capable. It's something you've thought about on your own, I'm sure.
STUDENT1: @toofrank No lie! I started on #1 and called it quits because Bazin was judging me from the afterlife.
STUDENT1: @toofrank Thanks! I'll do my best.
STUDENT2: @toofrank @STUDENT1 im having a perfectly wonderful time on this essay. i already wrote a kickass intro and i have 4 pages of notes.
STUDENT2: @toofrank @STUDENT1 also, im doing extra research because its just so FASCINATING! mwahahahahaha!
toofrank: @STUDENT2 @STUDENT1 I'm probably going to turn this whole conversation into a blog post: Teaching in the age of Twitter. ;-)
