|jimbojones||10:06 pm - god, myspace sucks|
I just got an email - seems I got a myspace message from Tom. So I logged on - turns out it's some sort of spam about myspace's version of ratemyprofessor.
I just blocked Tom.
I feel good about it.
Current Mood: bourbon and root beer - that's a mood right?
Current Music: that new David Duchovny show on Showtime

This exact topic was part of Jim's rant the first night he and I met 7 months ago, and ohhh, I've never forgotten it. The reality (and I feel that I can talk about the reality of teaching as I am a teacher and have been for 11 years) is that every student has a different learning style. This is the reason that in-class work theoretically complements the text book or out-of-class work, thereby giving studs at least 2 approaches. BUT many studs don't even DO outside work (or if they do, it's last minute) or use the text book and therefore become dependant on the teacher's approach which may or may not work with how the student best learns. To say, as studs do on ratemyprof, that the teacher/professor 'really explains the material well' is kinda moot in that the explanation of said material is only one explanation and, as previously mentioned, may or may not connect to the student's learning style.
As for reading into the reviews... oftentimes, studs can't read into anything. LOL!
