APA Writing Level 200 Course

Post by Zerifachias on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:06 am

Okay, I've said this somewhere else, but for homework this weekend, my class was told to copy down vocabulary words on some index cards, to make flash cards. Well, this WOULD seem like a good idea...if it wasn't a college sophomore level class.

Vocabulary words? What. Hell. The. Fuck. Is this professor -fucking- serious? I am NOT a grade schooler. We CAN NOT learn something of relative value from making -fucking- flash cards. This is a load of bullshit, because we can only miss 3 homeworks for the whole -fucking- semester before our grade gets fucked, and we have an assignment due every -fucking- class period. That's 29 homework assignments (the 1st meeting is an introduction class, so no assignment was due).

ON TOP OF THAT we have 2 research papers for the semester, 2 exams and 4 quizzes. Everything we learn in class is from lecture. We are allowed to ask questions, but we pretty much can't argue with the professor. There is no discussion involved, which is one of the ways I learn best.

A monologue lecture is the quickest way to bore a class and send them to sleep. You know why? Because we aren't learning jack shit. I've only had two classes and I already want to slit my professor's throat.

I haven't even got to the juicy part yet.

The first assignment involved following directions. Yeah, you read me right. Following directions. The almighty professor believes that most of her students fail her course because they don't follow the directions for homework assignments. While this COULD be a part of failing grades, it could ALSO be that you bore your students to death so they don't learn shit all. Seriously woman, we're fucking college students. WE KNOW HOW TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, HAG.

She talks to us in a VERY condescending manner, which pisses me off. If I wasn't required to take this course, I would have never considered it.

This is a fucking APA Writing course, where we're supposed to learn how to document and reference in the APA format. You know what this old hag lectures about? The Scientific Method. Which we learned in every grade from 4th-10th. We haven't fucking learned shit all about APA format besides the Running Head. That's it.

What. Hell. The fuck.

I feel sorry for you. ^ ^; Sounds like you would have had a lot more fun in my Academic Research and Writing class last year. APA was a big thing in that class along with learning how to do proper research using scholarly articles and stuff. Even though we were told what to write about (given prompts which I usually hate), I didn't mind any of the major papers we had to write. It was fun. Not to mention she let us freewrite every so often, so we'd just chillax in class and write about whateverthefuck we wanted. Just to help us get our ideas in order.

In your case, it doesn't sound like the class, but the professor. You should drop and try and get into another section. o.e; That's what I'd do. Well, I guess I wouldn't. Getting into another section is hard at my school right now since there's a shortage of seats.

There's only one APA Writing course, and I can't drop a class after last Friday without consequences.

Plus it took an age and a half to get into this class, so I just have to suck it up and do the tedious work.

I see. Well, at least the work is only tedious and not difficult. Then again, both kinds of work could keep you occupied for a while. =_= Just hang in there. You'll make it through.
