The 7 Things New College Students Don't Know That Drive Professors Crazy
from The Washignton Post
From May 12:
You're not in charge in the classroom. Too many high school students are used to bossing their teachers around, bullying or whining their way to better grades, or keeping up a line of patter that amuses their classmates. Secondary teachers are often too busy or too powerless to protest. But at the college level, the professors are in charge and, for good or ill, have a great deal of latitude in grading, plus very little oversight. Failure to follow the guidelines, whether implicit or explicit, leads to lower grades. I see so many students arrive at college feeling cocky until the first tests or essays come back and they realize that the way they behave in the classroom matters.
