Good teachers vs "uncaring" teachers How many of you do better in school/college when you have a good teacher that cares about how well you do in class? I know I do. My argument and persuasion professor is a down-to-earth type of professor that relates to students and uses humor and ''casual'' language to communicate and teach us. Good professors like her challenges us and makes us think about ourselves; she ''wakes'' us up to reality and what happens in books don't necessarily happen in real life. She is the opposite of most of my other professors. They are the kind that don't care about students and go by the book. They say that what happens in the book, will happen in real life, 99.9% of the time. What the book doesn't include are other factors like timing, different kinds of people, and exceptions. My A & P course has over 30 students, but the professor still manages to give each of us individual attention and gives us answers in layman's terms and not technical answers. Yes, I know that some courses require basic knowledge of the subject, but the professors sometimes gives answers that are too technical when the answer could have been explained better or easier. In my experience, I did well in courses where the teacher acted like a casual, down-to-earth person that cared about individual needs and had humor. One more example of a good professor was my financial account professor. Business is a very serious and technical subject, but let's just say that he basically made the aspects easier for us to understand and use jokes to connect the ideas, which I thought were nice. Sorry for the long post, but I really enjoyed my class today.
