The Lecturer

Sid teaches high school social sciences, including history, government, and psychology. He nearly always uses lecture to communicate ideas to his students. He views lecture as the most efficient way to instruct. Sid expects that his students take copious notes, which will help them on exams and prepare them for college.

He uses an overhead projector to model what he expects their notes to contain. He writes these as his lectures progress, so his students know what to write and when to write it. The use of the overhead projector requires that some of the lights be turned off in the classroom and the blinds closed. Otherwise, students will have difficulty seeing what he has written.

Sid prepares his lectures in advance. Preferring never to “wing it,” he follows a carefully prepared script from which he sometimes reads. He wants to ensure that his lectures are easy to follow and linear, and that each section of a class is exposed to the very same information. He often includes material not found in the textbook so that students are exposed to differing opinions. He even includes material from current journals, because some texts are hopelessly out of date.

Occasionally, Sid interrupts his lectures with questions such as “Don’t you agree, Tim?” To ensure that his students remain attentive, he always calls on a specific, randomly selected student. However, this often results in a response such as “Huh? Could you repeat the question?”  This is more likely to happen as class progresses. By the end of class, Sid notices that, invariably, at least two students have fallen asleep. He finds this incredibly frustrating.

“I can’t believe they sleep during class!” he exclaims. “How can they possibly expect to pass this class when they sleep through it?”

Predictably, many students, particularly those who have slept through lectures, do poorly on Sid’s exams. They simply do not have the requisite knowledge to write thoughtful responses to his essay questions.
