Have you ever purchased tickets to a movie or a concert and wanted your money back?
Did you get the feeling that your money was wasted on something you were really looking forward to buy, but the item let you down?
This class was my disappointing ticket purchase. There were a couple of highlights that made my money "appear" worthwhile, but on the whole I was displeased and believe I should get my money back. I like my professor because she means well, but her pedagogy is more along the lines of lecturer versus small class discussion. Mind you this is a small class of twenty students. She does most of the talking and it makes many in the class not happy. All I hear is, "click, click, click" of the girl text messaging next to me and I'm amazed if she believes she's quiet. So I sit here appearing to take notes and jotting down my thoughts on the environment around me.
Just got a handout on today's paper assignment. I don't agree with the assignment as far as the class is concerned, but I'll do it just to get it done. Many of my assignments are like that nowadays, is that something they should teach in high school before going to college instead of the pipe dream that is a "college education"?
Why does she keep looking at me? Sheesh, it seems she wants some sort of acknowledgment on something she mentioned. I guess I need to look up every now and then to make her think I'm paying attention. I don't know. This class is a general studies course, yet we are focusing on stuff in our papers that was not discussed in class. I hope she isn't expecting something great from this crowd.
Alright I've done my participation for the class today and I'm done. Man I gotta go to the bathroom, but she keeps talking. I made another comment, so definitely now I'm done. I hope she got my underlying looks that said, "Yo let the rest of the class be involved," but she keeps on talking. Phew, finally she is done talking and I'm done. On to the next one.
