Community College Dean has hall conversations up today on his webite. And the comments heard by commenters are also intriguing.
I was a little depressed, though, by Anon’s posting. The guy is not going to class because the teacher expects the homework to be done. (Well, duh!) And the girl is mad because the teacher told her to stop talking on her cell phone. She paid tuition, so she should be able to do that.
I don’t think our students understand that they paid tuition for the opportunity to learn. Not to get grades and do what they want.
I wonder if I should add that to my ever-growing list of things on my syllabus.
