Summary judgment al fresco

I am a northern by birth, upbringing, and inclination. Even after almost 16 years in Miami, I miss seasons and relish the several weeks where the temperature does not get above 71 degrees and is in the 60s in the morning. We had one such day today, the first in several weeks and likely the last  until next December.

So I took advantage of it and taught my Civ Pro class outside. I have wanted to try this for years and I found a day with perfect weather and a class (on summary judgment) for which I did not need the dry-erase board. Below is a photo, taken from the top floor of the building. The students seemed to enjoy doing this. It was a good class, with a lot of students engaged and participating. And it was kind of interesting to see where students chose to sit--who in the sun, who in the shade, who on the ground, etc. I even had one former student sit off to the side and listen.

Hmm, I'm teaching impleader next week here in New Jersey. Somehow I don't think I'm going to do the same!

(Funnily enough, I'm the opposite of Howard -- born in raised in sunny South Florida, but working in the north for a long time)

It hasn't been above freezing for any significant period in weeks here in Chicago, and the one day this cold promises to break (Saturday), the forecast is for day-long rain. Are you just trying to make us northerners feel bad, Howard? ;-)
