DOH!

I emailed my professor a question. He replied "we'll get to this point in our next class, since you bring it up, prepare the case." One year and counting hadn't been called on to prepare a case... Have you seen the Socratic method employed? Think interrogation rooms, the kind seen in movies... and add an audience of 100 people...*shudder* When will I learn, don't ask questions!

Actually aisha, the professor is showing a great deal of confidence in you. And/or is testing your abilities....perhaps he sees something there that you don't. I never see these sorts of things as bad...unpleasant maybe....but there are opportunities in these circumstances. It has happened to me many times....and after the initial shock and "ohmygod! what am I going to do?" I took it and ran with it.

Go get 'em!

LOL! Gotta love when teachers do that!

I complained in my 12th grade honors English class that we never read any ethnic poetry except by African Americans.... the teacher said, "You're right - could you read some to the class tomorrow?"

LOL... I actually enjoyed the assignment though.

Haha, you know just a few days ago, I was thinking about the first row in one of my large classes and how nobody in that row seems to have been called on yet. Great strategy!
