I don't know if We Can Color and Count.
Because of SHU's small student body which makes getting classes you need when you need them more difficult then a big university I was directed to go to WCCC for a class I needed. For the respect of the professor that is teaching the course at WCCC I will keep the class I am in out of all rants about the class, except to say it is a English class. Trust me it is not the professors fault, I have spoken on the side with said professor and have nothing but respect for the professor, the problem is my class mates. On the first day of class we get a syllabus like any other class. List of readings, tests, etc. So what is the first thing that is asked. "Are we going to do all the readings in class, or do you want us to do this on our own?", professor reply, "On your own of course.", student again, "Really, I thought we would do these in class, I don't like reading on my own."-this is really what was said as I have been keeping a running transcript of the ridiculous dialogue going on in this class. I was complaining to McGinnis the other day about this when he told me I, "had passed onto the 13th grade". This is hell. I understand that this is community college and that some (most) of these students will never take another college English class again, but to dumb it down this much. I feel that I am being ripped off of my $264.00 to take this class. I want a refund.
Side note: I was reading a magazine the other day when I came across a piece about a Florida State law professor who began a class by having the students read aloud their Facebook profiles. As Dr. Jerz has mentioned numerous times about the public nature of these types of media, a female student was embarrassed because she claimed on her profile that "being slutty" was one of her hobbies. I have not been able to find the exact blog entry that this article was quoting but here is the link to the blog the entry has come from : http://prawfsblawg.blogs.com/
