    Two things. First- a university professor neighbor of mine really liked the concept for this comic. He couldn’t understand where his most entitlement-minded students were getting the idea that they came into his class on the first day owed an ‘A’ and that his job was somehow to whittle it down.

    Second- Has everyone ordered their Buckets Book? The link is right there at the top and on the right of this page. It’s funny. I promise.

    It was a very funny book. And incredibly useful! It’s both good reading material AND handy if you’re reading it and need to squish a bug.

    just a fyi. I responded with my teaching method at the end of yesterday’s comments. I didnt’ realize you’d all be that interested. Thanks! Oh, I agree with Mr. Cravens above and his neighbor, but it’s the younger ones more so than the older ones. Most adult returners to college understand that you have to do the work to get the grade. Experience – a better teacher than me.

    Greg, I have a feeling this entire week’s worth of comics is going to end up on many teachers’ walls. I’ll be sharing with my teacher friends!

    @Comic Minister

    Clearly you’re one of those students expecting the A, since your communication skills are so very poor.

    What you meant to write is; “Did Toby say that?”

    Back to school for you.

    P.S., That A you were expecting is now down to a D-, sorry but that screw-up was a biggie!

    The teachers response? "Are you in preschool? The kid says “no” then onward to let them know they have zero and need to work to get “A’s” once again.

    I’m sorry to say that I can’t help you. I don’t have any wobbly tables. But I can say that it’s good as a coaster (as long as you only use non-sweating styrofoam cups.)

    so try a results oriented curriculum – like ENGINEERING. NO TICKEE, NO LAUNDRY. Nobody gets a free ride – it’s all based on TESTING (unlike liberal arts). I’ve taught at the community college level – vocational ed is the same – training for a specific JOB
