*looks astonished* I’m taking a Mass Media class this semester. At the outset the teacher outlined what he expected and listed what was expected to get an A, a B, a C, etc. One of the things he listed as being important in turning in assignments and getting an A is a good title. There were 18 submissions last night, 9 of which were titled Module 6. *stands there looking stupefied* We’re 6 assignments in and still half of the class hasn’t at least caught on that the other half is titling their assignments? I’m breathless with amazement. I’m left wondering if the class (or maybe the world at large) is full of lazy people or morons? *scratches head* It’s a 200 level class it’s as high as you can go at this community college, it’s not like it’s an entry-level class, these are people who aspire to a degree in Communications. I don’t get it.
I would never make it as a teacher. I’d fail each and every person who didn’t title their assignments because either they didn’t read the syllabus, are uncreative, or completely and utterly lazy, or the absolutely least observant Communications majors ever.
This is at the top of the syllabus, of which the reading of was part of our first assignment.
CRITERIA FOR SCORE
• Response has a creative title.
• Response has a masterful control of language (no more than one grammar error).
• Response has clear, orderly development (at least two full paragraphs with each paragraph having five sentences each).
• Response includes quotes from the primary text and module readings.
Come on if you can’t manage the grammar or writing or including quotes the least you can do is come up with a title, right? I seriously don’t get it.
