What was wrong? It was my first thought. Because I cannot understand why he said we weren’t good enough, and neither can my friends.
Now, a few hours later, once I’ve thought things clearer than I did when the teacher told us that we needed repeat our work, I DO understand what happened with our presentation.
The fact is that, when you combine a teacher whose experience is over 25 years -not to mention his age- and whose mind is more busy in his chores than in his students’ education; 23 students who doesn’t like to pay attention to the teacher; a pinch of haughtiness from the work team, and two days to cover 16 pages of the wretched anthology that the teacher gave us. The result, with no doubt will be a terrible disappointment.
That’s why I, as a student and as a future teacher, recommend you teachers to explain clearly what you want, and please don’t change your mind, at least not without notifying your students about it; and you students to be more responsible about your own education.
Remember, Traditional education doesn’t work anymore.
