So my Jewish American Lit professor doesn’t believe in grades. No, I’m actually serious. He says if it were up to him, we wouldn’t get final grades; in fact, the only grade he would give out is a F and even then, the paper has to be pretty bad. So this entire semester he has not passed out a single grade yet, well as far as I know no one has yet received a F on any paper. But now I don’t know what my final grade is going to be. Supposedly no one in the class will get below a B (his words, not mine) so I am trying to go back over my papers and read the first line of every overall comment he makes at the end of the papers.
paper one: “Good job”
paper two: “Excellent!” (and it was underlined, no less)
paper three: “Excellent!” (again, underlined)
paper four: “Very good”
paper five: “Very good!”
paper six: “You make a very strong argument Lauren!”
paper seven: “Very good”
paper eight: “Very good” (underlined)
midterm one: “Very good”
midterm two: “Very good analysis, Lauren”
final rough draft: “You have a very good topic”
BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? I has no idea, and this saddens me. Usually I can tell how I am going to do in all of my classes, but this one- I haven’t a clue. I mean, obviously a B or an A but…. grrr. Also, this post is me procrastinating on studying for my French and linguistics finals. Ahhhh I can’t wait for next week to be over with! Then I will be DONE with finals and DONE with this semster!! WOOT!!!!
