After having a discussion with a student today, I thought that this would be a good topic for a quick blog entry at the beginning of the new school year. So many students have a hard time getting into the swing of a new year or course and many of the students we interact with don't like school; don't like assignments; and can't wait to get out.
I'm not going to write a lot about what my opinion on the topic is but I do think that it is an important question for everyone to consider and I would like to see some comments develop on the subject or perhaps get some discussion going on our class website.
What is the worst thing that could happen if you followed your teacher's directions-advice-assignments?
Discuss, I'm curious to see your remarks.
