Downfalls of Continuing Education

In order to finish my Master’s degree in education, I need to write a research paper on a topic in my field and complete one more elective course. I’m saving the paper for this summer, when I have more time to write, but the elective begins this week. According to the course catalogue, the class is called Understanding Theories of Cognition for Instruction.

Sounds stupid.

I bet it’s a bunch of stuff about different cognitive styles and adapting your classroom to suit students with different needs. Boring. I bet we don’t even get to watch movies.

I heard that the students call this teacher Old Man Cooper, because he’s all old and saggy. What an idiot. Who cares about this stuff anyway? It’s, like, how am I supposed to write four pages on my cognitive style? Everything is so dumb.

Did you hear what Stacy said about you? She said that you’re fat and your clothes are dumpy and that the only reason you made out with Brice is because you’re desperate. Also, she said you’re a racist.

Grad school sucks.

    ‘old and saggy’ really puts an awful image in your mind.

    Please describe that awful image in detail.

  3. Ted says:

    Peter is slowly assimilating the various characteristics of his students. Soon he will only wear clothing from Abercrombie and Finch and insist on sitting in the back of the class.

  4. NEA Rep. says:

    Just think tough, Peter, after you finish, you will automatically be a better teacher. Don’t you dare question that statement.

  5. Ted says:

    … or they will set fire to your grade book!

  6. peter says:

    You learn early in your career not to cross the NEA, or be sent to the gulag.

    My sister said some disparaging things about them. Haven’t heard from her since.
