I am nominating one of my professors.
She has us writing our paper piecemeal. Write the Introduction: get it aproved. Write the transition sentences that are to go between paragraphs: get those approved. Write the conclusion: get it approved, then go on write the rest of the papers.
I struggled with this format. I made the teacher aware ( at her suggestion that we let her know what issues we are having - in each and every piece of correspondence we get from her. ) that I was struggling with this in January. Easter Sunday she wrote me a note and said I could have written it as a whole had I wanted to- after the bits and pieces were all done.
The assignment due today was to post about our challenges in writing the bits and pieces and I stated what I had told her, that I found it difficult to do it this way but that I had gotten through it with help from the teacher I got through it, but that I had no suggestions for others, other than to go to the teacher if they needed help working around this project. I put up my post late last night.
So, today I get an email about how she expects more professionalism and how she could not believe that I was still stating that writing in this manner was my greatest challenge in this assignment, especially since I had gotten full credit ( 25/25) for the assignment.
She then went on to shut down the student interaction forums and bar students from communicating with each other about the assignments.
OK, so you ask students what they find challenging and then have a temper tantrum when they answer honestly. Really? And then the student is unprofessional?
I am so not understanding the "logic" here. But I am calling SS here.
