Explore Michigan: Winter Fun in the Mitten

The days are short and the weather is cold and snowy. Don't fret though, because you live in Michigan, where there's enjoyment to be had in all seasons. Winter is one of my personal favorites because there are so many activities that you can only do when the weather is cold and there's snow on the ground. Lucky for you, Ann Arbor is one of the best places to take advantage of the season. If you're up for a day or weekend trip, the west side of the state and upper Michigan are some of the snowiest places in the U.S., thanks to the plentiful lake-effect snow dumped on us by the Great Lakes every year. In this post, I share my favorite winter activities, and how and where you can enjoy them.

Transparent Teaching, Better Learning

I sat down in a café with a nervous smile on my face. "So, how did I do?" I asked the CRLT teaching consultant.

"Well, the students could tell that you really cared and prepared carefully. But they weren't sure exactly what you wanted of them."

"How is that possible?! I have three pages of rubrics at the end of my syllabus!"
