Dear Gold A students,
Thank you for your comments on the IEP and Morgantown. It was very informative for me to read them all. I will try to address as many of your concerns as I can. First of all, many students complained about the class times and the amount of homework. Sadly, I cannot change those things. WVU decided that classes must start on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, etc. If Grammar class moves its time, it will be to 8:30 (!) or 12:30 (!!!). This is the only time for it. The amount of homework has to be like this, especially because IEP in the summer is very intense!
Many of you also mentioned that your tests are happening on the same day. I’m not sure if I can fix the problem, but I can try to ask other teachers when their tests are, and change my test day. I can’t make any promises about this, however. I can promise that I will be in my office when my office hours are happening. Your teachers should be available then, so hopefully this won’t be an issue in the future. And remember, you can always email teachers.
Finally, some people mentioned how speaking should be more important in the IEP. I know that my classes have involved less speaking than normal. I can try to change that. As a teacher, speaking is very hard to organize and grade, but I can try to involve more speaking opportunities in summer II.
I hope I have answered some questions and responded to most complaints. If you have any other issues, you can always mention them here, or in email.
Thanks again for your feedback!
