I'm spending all day prepping madly for teaching my new class next year (I teach one class a day at a local girls' high school). This year it is Vayikra AND Bamidbar in one year. It's an honors class so I figure I'll be teaching about 4x the material that I've taught the last 3 years. I have to figure out educational goals, content, presentation, assessment, and testing.
