Comments on: A sign you *might* be teaching a gen-ed class http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/11/14/a-sign-you-might-be-teaching-a-gen-ed-class/ "A man needn't go far to find a subject, if he's ready with his salt-box."--Uncle Pumblechook Wed, 14 May 2014 19:32:14 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Dance http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/11/14/a-sign-you-might-be-teaching-a-gen-ed-class/comment-page-1/#comment-4477 Sun, 18 Nov 2007 18:11:03 +0000 http://www.jbj.wordherders.net/2007/11/14/a-sign-you-might-be-teaching-a-gen-ed-class/#comment-4477 I’m considering a theory about contextual knowledge? They don’t forget our names to our faces (I hope), it’s just that they think “actually-in-class” is the only necessary context to remember them. A very extreme version of the way we forget (many) student names a week after grades are turned in, and take longer to come up with them when we see them outside of class.

PS. I just read backwards for a *whole* bunch of posts.

It hadn’t even occurred to me to check the upper-division students. (Although, in that situation, fully 50% of the class has had a class with either me or my wife before, so at least *some* of them have the brand-identification down!)

I’ve seen this happen in non gen-ed courses–a 300/400 level course, among majors in the subject? Who were excited about the material?
