...Words to cast/My feelings into sculpted thoughts/To make some wisdom last
Personal: Student Line That Made My Day

One of my students just asked me at the end of my second section how much of a response I wanted to a written assignment. After telling her, I then started explaining that I would give enough feedback with the first few assignments especially to make them more confident of what I wanted, "... and this will let you know how to –"

"Stop sucking." she said in the most matter-of-fact tone.

"... Well... yeah. I guess that sums it up."

And, of course, I am utterly delighted at anyone's attitude toward their education whose goal it is to intellectually "stop sucking." Would that that attitude spread like wildfire among the trainees posing as college students!
