Maintaining healthy relationships with students is all about establishing boundaries. While this may sound obvious or even simple, it’s often not. In this episode of the SociologySource Podcast, Chris and I delve into creating and sustaining boundaries, the challenges of teaching big classes in a small town, and what to do when the personal spills over into the professional.

How can we grade our students fairly?  What should we be grading them on?  And how can we grade written work in our large classes and still see our families?

The SociologySource Podcast

Today we are launching the SociologySource Podcast. A lively discussion about the issues sociology teachers face and a whole lot more. We are making this a weekly thing, so subscribe via iTunes or check back every Thursday for a new episode. Our regular cohost is Chris Garneau from the University of Science and the Arts of Oklahoma.

We’ve had a blast recording the first two episodes and I can’t wait to share them with you all. If you have an idea for a show topic or if you have a question you’d like us to discuss on air, send an email to Podcast@SociologySource.com. So what are you waiting for? Go take a listen for yourself.

I had the opportunity to talk with Jon Smajda on the most recent Office Hours podcast about SociologySource, the Soc101 Class Pack, and the SociologySource Manifesto. I am really proud of the podcast and I hope you’ll take a listen.
