I came across this article written by Jorie Scholnik on USAToday before class started this semester and I decided to share it here with you. I’m only including the very first thing on the list, but follow the link to read the rest.
1. “Did I miss anything important/Did we do anything important in class?”
Let me answer this one for you in one word: Yes. The answer will always be “yes.” The reason is because professors never stand up in front of a room or create an activity that they consider useless. Professors value their course and think the content is important every day. I will also add a bonus pointer here that it should be the student’s responsibility to find out what was missed in class.
