Have you ever wondered why some students excel while others, who seem equally intelligent, just get by? When a student did poorly in my class, I used to think it was me. Now I know that individuals have different goals for their education.
Maybe they are in college just to stay on their parents’ medical insurance policy. Maybe they are there to avoid having to get a post-high school job. One of my favorite reasons is the student who told me, “Well, the judge said I had a choice between prison or college. I chose college.” I thought, “Oh, goodie goodie gumdrops- you chose my class.” He turned out to be a good student and a very pleasant young man…..but I never found out what crime he had been convicted of……
I have been teaching an online class recently and there is a student who always does the absolute minimum, no matter what the assignment. He seems talented but chooses to waste his time with the course, rather than apply himself. It is such a pity.
Why do you think some students just get by instead of getting it done? Have you ever done that yourself? I look forward to hearing from you and how you overcame it…..of not.
