Mini-Quiz: When the Teacher is a Jerk

by Ron Kurtus (revised 23 December 2008)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why would one teacher give much more homework than other teachers?

Because she hates the students

Because she unfortunately thinks the students will learn more that way

Because she has sore feet and wants to take it out on everyone

2. What would probably happen if you were disruptive in a lousy teacher's class?

He would get angry and maybe quit his job

Everyone would think you were really cool

You would get reprimanded and perhaps not get a good grade

3. Why should you act cordial to a mean teacher?

To look after your own interests (i.e. your grades)

To infuriate him because he knows you hate him

Because you are afraid of being punished

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Getting Good Grades. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
