And there are plenty of "so called experts" teaching. In classes where there is wiggle room for what is "right" and what is "wrong" I prefer to figure out what the instructor wants and give them that even if I don't agree with it. Heck half of my answers for my tutor training class were nothing more then lip service. I wasn't about to go "I think this idea is a crock." Same applies to my programming classes. If the instructor wants a global variable then I'll use the global variable. I'm still going to use the best techniques I know in my personal projects but I want the dang A
You are right here. I am not a so called expert-by no means- but I mean by " cant back up their claims" when I know the students are obviously wrong- and the like to make it known to the entire class "of their expertise".
You are following directions-your grade "A"
Not hard is it.
You would not believe how many people in ours MS Applications classes that can't READ the steps , when it is spelled out in the text. As you mentioned- they want that "hand holding". :(Quote:
We had one assignment which was to randomily place queens on a 4x4 chessboard until there were no open safe spots left. He wrote out the method out on the board and gave the simplist method to use. I still had people coming in for tutoring that needed hand holding to figure out what to do.
