I Am Worried About My Grade

All professors & instructors can relate to the video, “I Am Worried About My Grade.”  We get it all the time.  Give a student a lower grade than what the student wants, and much of the time the student will march into your office demanding a better grade.  Oh, sometimes it is couched in terms of a request, but the tone of request reveals it is a demand.

I’ve taught at public universities and private colleges, and it seems to me that demanding students are worse at private colleges.

I found this video on YouTube.  I did not create it.  It does seem to strike a cord, though.
