I meant to write this post yesterday, but in the evening I went out for drinks with friends—something I rarely do—and once again I got home simply exhausted, but this time with much better reason.
Presessing went better yesterday. When I mock-taught (a much more dignified term, I think, than "fake-taught"), I used no canonical notes, no notes on a note pad, just the textbook with certain words underlined to indicate where I wanted to ask mock-students questions about morphology or syntax. And it worked.
