Student Tactics
Thursday, October 11, 2007
She approached me at the end of our Anatomy-Physiology class, asking for a project. When asked why, said she can't take the subject anymore for the fourth time. She said she have a feeling that she will again fail.

"Are you exerting some effort to pass the subject?", I asked, actually shocked that she's taking my subject for the third time. She said, "Yes, ma'am. I'm doing my best! But I have so many subjects I don't know which to give importance."

I scanned the class cards and found hers, only to find out that she incurred too many absences during the entire semester. I should have dropped her class card in the Academic Affairs office for her delinquency but I failed to do so. She thanked me for not doing it but insisted on the project. I told her then to study and try her best on the final exams so that maybe she won't be needing a project or a fourth round in the subject.

When I reached home I again looked at my record book and noted her performance. Oh my, she really have very low scores, no class participation, lots of missed quizzes, too many absences, and failing to submit assignments. I remember giving her a warning on the middle part of the semester but she took it for granted. What do I do with this kind of students? There are plenty of them in my nursing class. Expecting to pass without even doing something about it. They don't even prepare for their exams!
