CPP has indicated that “Delusional student antics never fail to cracke me the f*cke uppe.”
And now, an IM with #2.
#2: I was stern with a couple of students today. They discovered that horror of horrors, I get some of my lecture examples from the gasp textbook. And they figured they could just read the textbook during class rather than paying attention to lecture. And you know, snicker about it. Obnoxiously. So then I asked them how to do a problem. He was like, “the answer is 2.09.” And I asked how he got that. He didn’t know. So I asked someone who had been paying attention in class. She knew. Then I told him maybe if he’d been paying attention during lecture… I teach a 3 hour class
#1: me too. It makes me want to DIE.
#2: I got an email at the break from a student saying “I overslept, here’s my homework.” I replied, “Class is still going on.” There was a good hour more he could have been learning.
#1: just sack up and be like “I’m not coming to class today.” Make your choice, and take the consequences. Geez.
#2: sucks for him because this chapter is really tough, and it will be on the midterm and final
#2: I’m full of so much hate today. That’s what happens when I lecture for 3 hours when I’m sick and two of my students are disrespectful. My students have taken to wandering in 5 min late. Today I said screw it
#1: I would do a pop quiz in the first 2 minutes of class.
#2: ha. but then I would have to grade them, and that would suck
#1: nah, just collect the pop quizzes, put the fear of time into their hearts, then categorize as done/not-done.
#2: I just didn’t give the homework solutions to the late students.
#1: GOOD FOR YOU
