For the past two years, I have been working on students’ evaluation of classroom teaching. I have kept a record of informal conversations 71 some 300 students from at 72 twenty-one colleges and universities. The students were generally 73 and direct in their comments 74 how course work could be better 75 . Most of their remarks were kindly 76 - with tolerance rather than bitterness-and frequently were softened by the 77 that the students were speaking 78 some, not all, instructors. Nevertheless, 79 the following suggestions and comments indicate, students feel 80 with things-as-they-are in the classroom.
Professors should be 81 from reading lecture notes. "It makes their 82 monotonous (单调的)."
If they are going to read, why not 83 out copies of the lecture? Then we 84 need to go to class. Professors
should 85 repeating in lectures material that is in the textbook. " 86 we’ve read the material, we want to 87 it or hear it elaborated on, 88 repeated." "A lot of students hate to buy a 89 text that the professor has written 90 to have his lectures repeat it."
