    A whole new meaning for “money shot.”

    It’s not like the Teacher has a RESPONSIBILITY to present the material in an interesting and engaging way, is it?

    You know, actually try to make it RELEVANT to the Students who are PAYING his SALARY!

    (What AM I thinking, he has Tenure, He doesn’t care!)

    He does care or there wouldn’t be a grad student with a paintball gun in the back.

    The class is on “Listening Comprehension.”

    Zero tolerance gun-free zone. Lock the kid up and then lock the professor up for making threats and assault!

    About to toss out a pithy comment on your initial effort, I had to stop and admire your response to “Dr. Strange”. I’m sure the teachers of the world don’t appreciate his reflexive disdain!

    That part about the myth of multi-tasking is spot on. It’s more properly called “serial attention”.

    Red marks on the student to match the red marks on the student’s research paper.

    Actually, I was impressed by a professor I had my very first semester in college. He said that we weren’t in high school any more, and he didn’t really give a damn whether we showed up for class or not, or whether we paid any attention to his lectures or not … and in fact anyone who wanted to get up and leave on the spot could. He got his salary all the same, he said, so he wasn’t going to coddle us, cajole us, bully us or threaten us. Those who felt like learning could; those who didn’t care that they were wasting their tuition didn’t have to.

    I thought he was on to something. If the students of today want to learn, they can. If they’d rather play computer games or surf porn sites while in classes, that’s their lookout. But I don’t see why professors have to provide enough entertainment and fun and games to overwhelm them. I’ll settle for good, straightforward teaching.

    Same thing my professors told me. In 1971. Got my degree, graduated cum laude.

    The kid in the front row is used to cleaning off his screen.
