Worried about covering the material? Join "Anupholsteraphobics Anonymous?"

Anupholsteraphobia:  Fear of not covering the material.
What shall we cover in the first meeting of Anupholsteraphobics Anonymous? 

"... Like most of the teachers I ever encounter, I suffered from a common malady--what Stan Brimberg at the Bank Street School calls 'Anupholsteraphobia':  'the fear of not covering the material.'
Anupholsteraphobia cannot be cured, but it can be controlled."
- From "Discipline and Publish: Faculty Work, Technology, and Accountability," Randy Bass, Georgetown University, Plenary address delivered at the AAHE Forum on Faculty Roles and Rewards, San Diego CA, January 22, 1999.
