Just started College this year. Not going to use real names. so X university, my bio professor XXXX is terrible. just curious how to go about teaching my self biology. I say this because he well go over something, and not its background. say protein synthesis, this is all he has to say about it "The DNA base sequence codes for the primary sequence of amino acids on proteins" i just dont understand how he has a job. and he goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on, about nothing. He is very unclear on what he discusses and is terrible at trying to explain answers on quizes or tests. I talk to him but its like talking to a wall, no people or communication skills.
Getting a group together and teaching each other biology is a fun and good idea (just try and keep it down in the room that you reserve for your meetings). Ahh, good times. Someone has to be the leader though and do alot of motivating at times (baked cookies was my speciality for motivation). The hour right after lecture was what we did. Then we could complain for 10 minutes or so, and then try to unravel what the heck the prof was trying to teach us.
i tried one study group and your right someone does have to be the leader. and it looks like its me lol. so cookie work eh? well i might try that. today went a lot better we went over Gycolysis,and krebs cycle. finally something that is easy to understand. thanks for the input I really think the study group is going to be a good idea...except that we all live about 20-30min away from each other lol...after class will probly be the best time. i'll fill you guys in on how its going in after the next exam.
When the time comes for teacher evaluation, be sure to metion this in your comments. Get the most you can out of the class (even if its not much) and keep an eye on the syllabuss. Withe the guideline of what you need to learn, study your textbook and look up the sections online. It's amazing how much one can learn from youtube alone.
