6 things you should say to your professor | USA Today College
These are some really, really good tips. As a professor, let me tell you: The “Instead of saying …” quotes are the ones we hear most often. And they illicit an invisible eye-roll. The “… say [instead]” bits would instead illicit an invisible fist-in-the-air. So do that!
Okay, BUT…make sure you actually DO the shit you say you’re doing if you use these approaches. I can already hear students thinking about what great lines these are, full stop, without recognizing that you need to put in the work to back them up.
