Thats it! I have been as fair as I can possibly be to my stats 202 intro class! I give them study guides, I practically outline how to ace my course and they still get pissed when I quizz them before a vacation. Finals are in three weeks, some students are in jeopardy of falling below the regulation 2.7 GPA for this semester, and if that puts them below their Cumulative for what they need to stay at this institution then they get put on academic probation. Oh stink’in well!
Hands fly up BIG SIGH!
I have had three students in my office today moaning about what they can do to ‘make the grade’ - i.e. is there any extra credit they can do etc…etc…
Yeah! You can write the 7-11 page paper on the topic stated in your syllabi. Short of that NO! You should have shown up more and understood the material.
*for those teachers out there who have similar problems, can you pick the students out by week 4 that will be in your office the week before Thanksgiving moaning about extra credit etc…etc…
I may be in a bit of a bad mood right now but SERIOUSLY PEOPLE!!! YOU ARE PAYING 35K A YEAR TO SMOKE POT! PLEASE JUST DO THE READING, AND SHOW UP FOR CLASS.
I have nothing against students partying, as I have said in the students and Marijuana threads of last year. But something is happening to me, I am losing the ‘give a shit’ node in my cerebrum because I’m sick of students trying to abuse the system, and do less work for the same A.
I’m having a bad day…I was in a small fender bender last week and the woman is now filing an injury claim…ERRRRR!!! I was going barely 2 miles an hour backing out of a parking space and I tagged her VERY LATE MODEL corrola. I can’t believe she’s filing injury claim. ERRR!!! Sorry for venting.
