Today I received an “A-“ on an assignment. I totally and completely wanted to THROTTLE my teacher for that. Do you think I’m being too sensitive? I personally think I am … I saw that grade in my email and stood right up, stalked up to his desk and said “is there any particular reason I received an A- on that assignment?”
The reason? Instead of putting copyright information at the bottom of each of my website pages I put “Back to Top.” Okay – no problem – that was a mistake on my part I suppose – it’s completely fixable. But – since I’m rather bitchy and hormonal lately I said to him “Soooo, if I change that footer to copyright information will you change my grade to reflect that?” and he said yes. So, I changed it.
My teacher is not a “Web development” teacher – he’s a Programmer (and he is supposedly a good programming teacher). But as far as grading web design projects he tends to pull the grades out of his ass. He gives no “constructive” criticism. He just gives grades. Thankfully, I have two other teachers who are awesome and give me feedback (I also have awesome web development friends who help me a lot also).
I just … ugh, I don’t know … this teacher just SERIOUSLY annoys me. Not to mention I’ve had a helluva week … Anyway – here’s the website in question (I know there are some browser compatibility issues). What do you think?
