Top 5 Things You Shouldn't Say to a Teacher
New blog post up on VoicEd.ca about things you should never say to a teacher. Here's a small excerpt:
“Tests are a good way to see if the teacher is doing their job right”. No no and no. Tests are the necessary evil we must face every year. Not only do they not measure a teacher’s ability to teach, but it doesn’t always measure a student’s level of understanding. One bad day = one not so good test. That test doesn’t equate to the countless raised hands and answered questions during any other day or lesson. For this reason, many teachers don’t place all of the importance on tests; what students produce elsewhere is just as important.
