    I have a similar experience in my modern physics class. Professor is super nice, but this is his first class and he can't teach. Grades are so bad that he says he's going to curve so much that no one will get less than a B-

    I once had an accounting exam and the teacher gaves us a practice version and heavily implied that the exam will be identical. On top of that, many of the questions were questions we already did in class or those that were in the book with solutions. I’m not great at accounting and I got 100%. Only like 30% of my class passed the exam however. Lol

    In other news, I finished my tutoring program today, so that’s good. I’d be lying if I said I won’t miss some of the kids though. It feels great when they start to feel comfortable and open up to you. At the same time, it can be pretty heart breaking. A lot of these kids come from real rough backgrounds and it shows :tear:

    Got a B on a paper I wrote the day before and somewhat edited the day of, so that’s tight. Then got an A on these journals that we were supposed to be writing all semester but I did the night before. This is for the same teacher that was like, “this isn’t the type of class where you can BS and do the work the day before.” We’ll see about that B-)

    About to give a presentation on something I know very little about so that should be rad. Thankfully it’s a group presentation so I’ll have some cushion. At this point in the semester I barely care about quality. I’m just turning shit in

    If you go to business school, anytime a teacher makes you do something dumb or irrational and you point it out they brush it off with “that’s what happens in the real bussines world so you have to learn how to cope” lol

    Nope! This weekend/week will be absolute hell. Then one more week after that which will also suck, but a little less so.

    Good news though. I just got back a pretty extensive multimedia project and a longform writing assignment, both of which I did the night before they were due and got A’s! So, seeing that alleviated some stress.

    For the multimedia assignment I had to design a project for jr high or high school students (I picked 12th grade) that incorporated multiple facets of the common core standards. So for the first part I had to come up with and design the project for the students, then I had to come up with a way to show them how to go about it logistically, and then for the last part I had to do the assignment as if I were a student. Then just had to do a bit of writing on it. I ended up going with an assignment that required them to make an opinion piece for YouTube. It wasn’t hard, just a lot of steps.

    Then the other thing was fairly easy as well, just a lot. And I could have been doing it all throughout the semester but come on, it’s me. We’re reading this book called The Art of Critical Pedagogy that’s basically just about pedagogical theorists and how they’ve implemented their style into different classes. Anyways, we just had to go through the chapters and select quotes from the text and then sort of interpret them into laymen’s terms. Then we had to do some reflection. Not hard at all, but incredibly tedious and ended up being around 15-20 pages handwritten.

    oh wow this is basically how my high school experience went to a certain extent. a lot of project based learning. it fucking ruled

    how's that book? been thinking about looking into pedagogy more cause it was thrown around a lot at the research conference i went to recently, and i figured if im gonna kick around the idea of grad school i may as well really look into it. also you and i handled semester long projects exactly the same this semester hahaha. completely unsurprising.

    tbh, unsure! i don't think any of them were utter dog shit, exactly, but none of them were my best work either. That Liz Phair paper was definitely pretty rough, so i'll definitely do the worst on that one, and im automatically down a lower letter grade because i didn't do the semester long components (bc it felt like busy work and i hate busy work but im an idiot). The other ones were both for film classes, and the one that was just a paper was pretty simple but i definitely wasn't sure i grasped the theory and i feel like it shows. so that one is probably gonna be a bit better than the Liz Phair project but not much. Last things were my film journals, which were also supposed to be written throughout the semester (four of them). those had a much looser set of criteria i had to meet so i anticipate im gonna do quite well but i don't necessarily think i engaged with the material as much as i should have so we'll see. this is a lot of text to say im not sure of anything ever

    Lol we have this terrble teacher and yesterday he kicked someone out for not bringing a laptop (this is an MBA mind you, he really shouldn’t be kicking people out lol) but the dude just refused to leave and stood there in protest, so the teacher wouldn’t start, and nothing happened for hours until school management came and told the teacher “wtf you can’t do this asshole” lmao

    Now he doesn’t want to give us our paper topic until two days before the deadline because that’s how it was in his MBA.... so we’re going to have to go through management again lol

    Had two finals this morning, calc 3 and physics 2. I spent way too much time studying for physics and not enough for calc so I feel like I did shit on that. Was hoping for a B in the class but I guess that won’t happen
