A few more of my composition students have filled out their end-of-class surveys. I’m sorry, but it’s really hard for me to take this criticism to heart:
-we were compaired to her children who are apparently smarter than us in grammer
The incident this student refers to is the story about the error on the back of the Fruity Cheerios box. I was explaining, during my subject/verb agreement lecture, why “one in ten kids gets” and told them that Beanie caught the mistake and asked me about it.
Never once did I, nor would I, EVER compare my students to my children (or vice-versa). This student thought I did, though, and there it is in black and white on my performance survey.
