I haven't been on much lately. ;U;
School has been kind of annoying, especially for my economics class. I'm really frustrated with the teacher, he does things the old fashioned way.
Homework everyday, and at least a 5 page packet of homework to do on the weekend.
Notes every other day, and he expects them to be well organized and summary on every page in if they are OUR notes for OUR tests.
A worksheet every other day, and if not completed in class then its homework.
Test every friday.
We have to write an "end of the week" report every friday on what we learned in the class. Which I always write rants because of how upset I am with his teaching methods. Economics is so simple, but the questions are terrible. The whole class can agree with me, and so does my family on how terrible it is. I haven't really learned anything in this class. Its just a social study of a money or trade influential system, and graphical representations of how demand works, which he has been repeating over and over for the past month.
A quiz every other day on your previous homework, half word bank and the other half true or false questions.
These quizzes are the things that upset me the most.
We have to memorize all the words, even if we seldom went over them in class the previous day; he refuses to write the words up on the board himself. The words are pretty simple, however the questions are worded terribly. They are worded to confuse us so its very easy to fail this test from the word bank part of it.
The true or false questions are just as annoying.
"Price can effect quantity demanded."
that should be TRUE.
Yes, it can effect it.
Apparently, it was FALSE.
Because there was a missing part.
"Price AND ability to buy can effect quantity demanded."
Excuse me sir, that is still true. The fact that the answer is false because the other part of it was missing and yet the first part is still true is total bull.
Price and ability to buy can be separate things. They don't always rely on each other.
Especially for this type of question.
Then later we get another question saying:
"Price is the only thing that effects quantity demanded."
Its not the oNLY thing so it must be false.
WRONG! ITS TRUE!
BECAUSE ON A GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION, APPARENTLY IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT EFFECTS IT. ONLY GRAPHICALLY.
"Your neighbor plants a tree in their yard, and it shades your house. Is that a bad thing or a good thing?"
Ignore the shade, because I have neighbors with trees and even WITH shade our house is hot as hell. No difference. My mom has a garden and if the tree is blocking the sunlight that can be very upsetting. Later if the branches get into your yard and you have to cut it up because of all the space its taking up, and if the roots get into the drains and cause problems..
"you're over thinking it."
Am I, sir? Seven other kids in class pointed out how bad that question is, I'm not the only one.
I'm really concerned for this class. Kids need this class to graduate and I hardly see many kids passing it with all these ridiculous tests and quizzes he's having us take. It really effects our grades in the class. I'll probably email him in the future to fix his methods, but he doesn't like to listen to us, so I don't think I'll be helping very much. Once again, they expect us to act like adults yet still treat us like kids. They don't seem to see the problem still.
Sorry for the rant. Any of you having problems with teachers or classes at school?
