Post by Arc on Wed Aug 22, 2012 9:20 pm

8:54 PM - Arc: this has been a terrible night.
8:54 PM - catpoop: Sad
8:54 PM - catpoop: what happened?
8:55 PM - catpoop hugs you
8:55 PM - Arc: these sweet potato fries taste like ass when reheated ._.
8:55 PM - catpoop: is that it
8:56 PM - Arc: there was nothing i could do to heat my pack of ramen that i brought with me for dinner.
8:56 PM - Arc: so i panicked and drove out to find a cheap fast place to get a sammich, with 20 minutes before class
8:57 PM - Arc: i was lucky to find a mcdonalds
8:57 PM - Arc: and i ate the sammich on teh way back
8:57 PM - Arc: and ran to class, just one minute late
8:57 PM - Arc: like a pro
8:57 PM - Arc: but
8:57 PM - catpoop: good job.
8:57 PM - Arc: this class
8:57 PM - catpoop: dont keep eating mcdonalds though >_<
8:57 PM - Arc: was
8:57 PM - Arc: goddamn
8:57 PM - Arc: terrible
8:58 PM - catpoop: oh no :c
8:58 PM - Arc: it was so bad that i want to get out of it. tomorrow.
8:58 PM - catpoop: why?
8:58 PM - Arc: WHERE TO START
8:58 PM - Arc: the key thing is the professor. he's FUCKING CRAZY.
8:59 PM - Arc: he hands us a bunch of syllabus papers that arent in order and not stapled. ok. thats fine.
9:00 PM - Arc: he directs our attn to this older student who is our teacher assistant and she says shell be helping during labs and stuff. and that she was the one who graded all the papers.
9:00 PM - Arc: then the professor (who is a middleage chinese guy with a bad case of engrish)
9:01 PM - Arc: kept saying that he and the TA should get together sometime.
9:01 PM - catpoop: eughhhhhh
9:01 PM - catpoop: how old is she ;_;
9:01 PM - Arc: side note: she looks and reminds me of mitsuru from P3
9:01 PM - Arc: she's a few years older than me i suspect.
9:01 PM - Arc: but anyway
9:02 PM - Arc: she kinda just deflects it and goes on because she has another class to assist
9:02 PM - Arc: oh my god
9:02 PM - Arc: i wish she never left
9:02 PM - Arc: you see
9:02 PM - Arc: she would have probably been able to teach us something
9:02 PM - Arc: because he sure as hell didnt
9:03 PM - Arc: this room has a pulldown screen
9:03 PM - Arc: but no projector anywhere
9:03 PM - Arc: so the teacher brought in an additional monitor and hooked his laptop up to that
9:03 PM - Arc: but
9:03 PM - Arc: he sat where we were sitting. he was actually across the row from me
9:04 PM - Arc: and had his laptop with the powerpoint in front of him
9:04 PM - Arc: and the extra monitor 5 feet away from him, to his right
9:04 PM - Arc: so
9:04 PM - Arc: more than half the class couldnt see the powerpoint
9:04 PM - Arc: which was a moot point
9:04 PM - Arc: because he talked about the subjects so fast and with terrible engrish
9:05 PM - Arc: that noone woulda been able to copy anything down
9:05 PM - Arc: and then when he got to talking about all of the physics and scientists whose work was relevant to our intro to chemistry
9:05 PM - Arc: he bashed
9:05 PM - Arc: every
9:06 PM - Arc: single
9:06 PM - Arc: one of them. called one guy a complete idiot
9:06 PM - Arc: and then said one of the students behind me was just like that because he didnt know what was going on.
9:07 PM - Arc: he tries to teach us hydrogen and helium, and how they connect with the concept of the electromagnetic spectrum. ok, thats not so bad
9:07 PM - Arc: oh wait yes it is
9:07 PM - Arc: nobody in the class understood any of this shit.
9:08 PM - Arc: half way through he says that we're taking a half hour break and in that time we have our first quiz
9:08 PM - Arc: about stuff we just learned.
9:08 PM - catpoop: what the hell Sad
9:08 PM - Arc: he leaves
9:09 PM - Arc: another student said he saw him getting in his car and just left
9:09 PM - Arc: apparently he brought his son with him, and i guess he took him home
9:09 PM - catpoop: wow o_o
9:09 PM - Arc: he was back in a half hour. in that half hour all of us were like WTF DO WE DO
9:09 PM - Arc: and we all tried to help eachother understand it. but it wasnt much use. so we all just wrote down a couple of basic things.
9:10 PM - Arc: and then he keeps going on with the lecture.
9:10 PM - Arc: talks about some metals
9:11 PM - Arc: and when he gets to silver he randomly says that silver gas was used to kill the jews
9:12 PM - Arc: and earlier when talking about the hydrogen bomb he kinda made light of hiroshima and nagasaki
9:12 PM - Arc: and tried to keep talking past the class's end
9:12 PM - Arc: but then we could all leave
9:13 PM - Arc: i walked out to my car and promised that i would get out of that class asap
9:13 PM - Arc: and two cars away from where i parked i see that kid who was presumably the teachers. sitting in a car alone.
9:13 PM - Arc: he left his kid in the car. or maybe the kid didnt wanna go back in.
9:13 PM - Arc: i wouldnt blame him
9:14 PM - Arc: Alison this is the worst first class ive ever been in. The teacher is very egotistic. Says he went to harvard and taught at princeton
9:15 PM - Arc: he speaks 3 languages at once. some of his powerpoint slides from what i could see were in chinese
9:15 PM - catpoop: what
9:15 PM - Arc: he kept saying ovaries
9:15 PM - catpoop: what why
9:15 PM - Arc: but what he was really saying was
9:15 PM - Arc: vitamin D
9:16 PM - catpoop: yeah, I don't blame you for wanting to get out lol
9:16 PM - Arc: ;____;
9:16 PM - Arc: i should have not gone to class

It seems like everyone has at least one really bad horror story about a teacher.

The kind of people that are like. "How did anyone, EVER think that this person would be able to teach?"

I mean, there are some people that are smart and don't know how to communicate it, or their teaching style just doesn't match up with an individual's learning style.

But fuck me.

I don't think I ever had a teacher like that. What subject? I'm assuming some kind of science. Though it would only further the point that he was nuts if he was talking about the electromagnetic spectrum in an anthropology class.

Seems like a chemisty class.

Geez, it's amazing just who can become a teacher. Didn't seem to have really any idea what he was doing. I hope I don't get a teacher like that, though in saying that I probably just jynxed myself. ><
If you haven't dropped that class yet. Drop it. Lol.

The one thing I'd suggest is for you to leave feedback. With the professor, the university, wherever. Anonymously if you must.

Otherwise he'll keep on doing his thing, and students will suffer.
This is the sort of issue universities tend to want to know about. I assume that's why they're always handing out course evaluations at the end of each semester over here.

Of course, I don't think you'd get any benefit from doing this, so it all depends on how much you want to be a good Samaritan and/or how much you hate the guy.

It's a shame, but leaving feedback doesn't accomplish a whole lot. More often than not, it'll pretty much amount to: "Well, that's unfortunate, but hang in there. Or suck it up."

I had a teacher last semester, (my last semester) that was bad news from day 2. Day 1 she was lame, but at least not stupid.

By the time we got to week 4 she had to have me go up to the board to explain the percentages of how our grades worked for the class. Cause she was so bad at math she couldn't do it. Granted, it wasn't a math class but if the woman couldn't grasp the basics of math, there was no way for her to grasp basic levels of logic.

Which she didn't. I got me enjoyment out of the class by taking the piss out of her and poking holes in her swiss cheese arguments.

Getting back to my point, I sent a message to the head of the Broadcast department, and the head of the english department. She was an english teacher teaching a broadcast class. The head of the english department had no clue who she was, and the head of the broadcast department pretty much told me to deal with it.

Nobody, NOBODY in that class as a student could have given her a good review, cept for one or two of the crazies that agreed with the lady. 75% of the class got Cs or less by the end of the semester, and yet they still kept the lady on for the next semester. (This one.)

Sorry I got a little carried away in my rant. The reviews KINDA matter, so I don't want to discourage it, but don't expect it to revolutionize things.

Even though the student's opinions should matter more.

here's the funny thing. when i went to switch out of it, there were two of my classmates sitting there waiting to talk to someone about the teacher. one of the deans came and spoke to them and i stayed for a bit and added to their story of what happened. the dean was very interested in what we had to say.

Really? What exactly happened after that?

I mean, they always listen. But who knows what happens after that?

Maybe I don't give the school system enough credit, but that was the impression I got throughout high school and through to college.
