Classroom Communication Barriers Are One Of The Factors Affecting Student Learning
Classroom communication barriers are common in the classroom and is one of the factors affecting student learning. If you can’t understand what the Professor is saying, chances are it will be very difficult for you to understand the concepts he or she will be discussing in class as the semester progress, so drop the class. You might say I will read when I get home and make it make sense. From experience some classes require regular class attendance and most importantly proactive participation just to make the minimum passing grade for example Econometrics or Mathematics. So if you can’t understand him or her from the first day and this is not your last semester you should consider dropping. Your grades will thank you.
You Normally Wakeup At 10am
Your class is at 7am and you normally wakeup at 10am due to you late night activities then drop the 7am class don’t kid yourself, because chances are unless you drastically change your sleeping pattern you will be missing more classes than you have fingers to count. Do yourself a favor, be honest and drop the class.
Success Is The Best Revenge
Some of you might say how childish! You’re going to drop a class just for that reason alone? Blah Blah Blah! Let me explain. If you are not over the situation chances are this is going to affect your concentration in class. Some classes are hard enough from the beginning to the end of the semester, so you really don’t need added distraction during that period especially if it’s going to affect you emotionally, thus possibly affecting your performance in the class. Be smart about it and maintain that GPA, because remember success is the best revenge.
Professor Putting Students Through Hell Even For Less Difficult Classes
Some Professors believe in putting students through hell to make the grade. I have personally experienced this especially in the less difficult classes. In those type of classes you understanding the material alone is not going to help you get a good grade. You will have to be very proactive by paying close attention to every single mini task that needs to be submitted. Those classes usually have countless of activities that must be completed during class time so missing a class session or two can be very detrimental to your grade.
So I highly recommend you to go through that magazine and be honest with yourself. Do you have the time to complete all these mini tasks during the semester? If you don’t forget it!
Instead just pick your bag up and find yourself another class that will provide the right balance. In other words don’t bite off more than you can chew.
That Professor From Hell
So you register for a class and the Professor was “to be announce” but you signed up anyway and hoped for the best, but on the first day of class that Professor from hell walks in. Well it’s in your best interest to drop that class immediately. I have yet to experience a Professor whose teaching style dramatically changed according to the class him or her was teaching – their mannerism and teaching styles are very consistent, so save your GPA and most importantly protect your sanity.
Textbooks Are Too Expensive
It’s an elective and the textbook or textbooks are too expensive and to make matters worst the professor said having the text books is a requirement to pass that class. Save those dollar bills. No need to go broke for a class that is not even a requirement of your degree plan. Find another class that suits your budget. If you are so passionate about the area research what’s available online. In general after taking a couple of classes you will soon realize that most of the content can be found online for cheaper or no cost. Check YouTube you will be surprise. I have found videos on there that explain concepts 100 times better than the Professor no shade – it is what it is. Just a heads up, so try your best to be resourceful.
Now Let’s Flip The Script And Discuss Reasons You Might Want To Suck it Up
Now if this is your last semester oh my tough luck! I am truly sorry. You might just have to suck it up because let me tell you a little secret … yes come closer … corporate will have similar situations where you will be forced to deal with situations that you would rather not deal with. For example you can’t drop a client as a result of your inability to understand them when they speak. For this situation you would have to suck it up in order to keep your position at the company. Another example is co-workers you don’t really get along with. Well you can always quit but when you start “Adulting” and bills start popping up in every direction quitting might not be an option unless you’re fine with living in your parents basement for the rest of your life.
So my final thoughts are sometimes you don’t have a choice but to just drop the class but if there is any chance you can hang in there and make it through the semester I would recommend trying because it’s definitely great training for other situations you will face in life that will require you to be patience and be resilience.
Have you ever dropped a class? How was your experience! What made you toss the towel? There are classes I wished I dropped LOL! Let’s talk!
