Tea Party produces video that depicts the murder of children, grandmothers, teachers who disagree with their small gov't/fiscally conservative philosophy. GOP and other groups affiliated with the T.P. largely silent. Oh, wait. . .
Final exam or no final exam? I've been teaching college students for almost 25 years. Lots of lessons learned in that time. Probably the most important lesson: exams do not work. In my courses at U.D., I give students five comprehensive essay questions one week before the scheduled exam period. On exam day, I randomly assign each student a question. Students report that they spend more time studying for this sort of exam precisely b/c they know what to study. I absolutely hate GOTCHA exams! Oh, and "hoop jumping" exams are worse. . .
And speaking of loathsome academic practices. . .students are given class credit for attending that Lefty rally in D.C. Did Beck have to bribe people to attend his rally?
