I’m frustrated with this class. When I speak up in class, other students roll their eyes at me. I ask questions or make comments and the instructor always disagrees with me. I’m torn between just shutting up and being a non-participant and trying to drive home my points.
Most likely, I’m going to buckle down in order to know the material better. I’ll do research to determine whether I agree with the rules. I doubt I’ll argue my point in class but I will in my own mind disagree with the instructor.
I guess I just have to find my own way through this material. I have all these books on grammar and punctuation so I just need to make things clearer in my head. Ultimately, I’m not doing it to get a good grade in this class. I’m doing it to be a better editor for myself and my clients. I need to keep that in mind as I’m working on the material from the class.
