March Slice of Life

March Slice of Life

One                                                                                      The Other

Will not tolerate any talking to peers                             Asks questions and wants

even if you are asking for clarification                           feedback to make sure we are

from someone next to you.                                             understanding.

Holds us until the last minute even                               Begins class giving us an outline that

though she knows it is a long day/night                       he sticks to so work gets done early

Changes our black font to reds and greens                  Gives us verbal, positive feedback

Will send e-mails telling us how she wants                 Makes a schedule to call us to discuss

our papers done                                                              how we are doing with our project

(feeling like a grad school child)                                    (feeling like a grad school adult)

    love this. I just read my students Joyful Noise by Paul Fleischman and had them write their own poem in two voices- that’s what this reminds me of. I am also reminded of my good professors and the ones whose classes I got through.

    Such an interesting format — love the contrast. The visual space allowed the reader to paint two pictures side-by-side while reading. I’m all for grad school adult. 🙂 Sheesh!!

    Nice way to compare the two, bet I know which class you enjoy more and which one you are probably learning more in.
