I’m taking a few days off from publishing new posts this week.
I thought that new – and veteran – readers might find it interesting if I began sharing my best posts from over the years. You can see the entire collection here.
As regular readers know, I have students in my high school and my college classes complete anonymous evaluations of the courses and of me at the end of each semester, and publish the results here on this blog (see My Best Posts On Students Evaluating Classes (And Teachers) ).
In 2013, The Washington Post decided to publish one of those compilations, and you can check it out at Teacher: How my 9th graders graded me.
And, then, last year, they decided to report again on how my students evaluated me. They used this unforgettable headline: NEWS BREAK (not breaking news): Teacher asks students to grade him. One wrote: ‘I give Mr. Ferlazzo an A at being annoying.’
