I’m starting to see something over and over again.
Students who feel entitled to lecture their professors on the quality of the feedback they get, that it’s not positive enough. Students who simply can’t handle being told that their work was an incoherent mess (this is a real example, from a guy who then went on to remakr that it was no wonder I’m rated so poorly online, as if I would actually alter my class based on a ratemyprofessor rating).
It’s one thing not to be an asshole. And BOY HOWDY can I be an asshole. (I don’t know what that means, actually, it’s a Kansanism I picked up of a friend down here. If you’re Boy Howdy, I apologize) But it’s quite another thing to be so fragile that you can’t handle even medium-weight feedback. Methinks something went wrong with all that self-esteem training.
