Think you have the the world’s worst professor?Think again.Now read.
1.The 4 notebook rule-A notebook for copying slides,A notebook for copying wikipedia,A notebook for tutorials and a notebook for quizzes.To show that he was serious he started even cross checking and marking the defaulters down.Now,Students will spend time writing metallurgy hehe.
2.NoT Sharing the slides-Turns out this professor fears something.The copyright infringement.By not sharing the slides he kills two birds with one stone.The students write notes and the lesser issue of copyright violation is solved too.Clever eh?Now,they will definitely,have to write notes.How can they not,i told them i am deducting marks if they dont.
3.Presentation and group presentation-Groups presented topics outside the syllabus,working meticulously and with some enthusiasm.How does he spoil that?Puts the Presentation slides for the final exam after taking a quiz on it.The students have enthusiastically created the slides.Lets check their limits of enthusiasm by asking these in the tests.
4-Role playing-One sudden morning he decided to play the quiz master.Shooting questions at random students.Needless to say,it wasnt an easy sight.Last Night KBC was awesome,Maybe if i act like Amitabh Bachchan i can win the students over
5-public humiliation-Not pleased with student performance ,(His fault the paper was tough :X),he goes on to announce the marks,calls students at the dais and awards the answer sheets after a short lecture.Public humiliation always works.I read that in some book.
6-Tests-Well,they were tough.I mean even his TAs wouldn’t get all of them.For the first time in the history of education,he innovated negative marks for wrong definitions.Tough tests would make them feel ashamed and they will study hard.Haha
7-strict attendance-All of the above wouldnt be outrageous had he taught awesomely.But,he found a way to make up for that as well.The way his TAs took attendance was like taking roll call in prison.Like Accounting Gold bars.Haha,finally my 7 step plan complete,students you are trapped and so screwed *evil laugh* HAHAHAAHHA.
Wait,he isnt that bad though.
In his last class he came out as a good person,he announced that there would be grade penalty to students with less than 80% attendance,thats a relief,the other option XX was real bad,i wouldnt want to repeat this course again.ever.
