people who act like they know it all Watch
Interesting to hear.
My sixth form teachers also expect this of us, especially those of us aiming for As & A*s, especially in Physics, you don't stand a chance without any prep work as the teachers teach the lessons assuming everyone has done the preparation, no topic introductions. What subject do you teach?
But prereading in itself is a really good idea. Also you’ll be able to answer questions and know things about the topic before hand- which would speed up your rate of learning
No he's right about predicted grades, those of us starting Y12 don't actually have predicted grades yet (although we're going to be given them soon). However I completely agree with you, as someone who wants A*s as predicted grades, you absolutely need to do the prep work, as teachers also base predicted grades off how well you perform in the classroom to a certain extent, in addition to exams, but to be honest preparation work helps with both.
And I’m making a wild guess here that you probably come from a background that really knows the value of education.
I go through the teaching calendars and do a preread of every topic before, the lesson, then revise it afterwards. There's nothing wrong with doing this. It's what gets you a good grade. Stop complaining and do it yourself and see the results, maybe then you won't mind so much. 'act like they know everything'.... If you preread that's the point, you do know everything beforehand. I do it because I want good grades, not to show off how much I know (although that can be an added bonus), but I would never pretend to know it all naturally, I'd say how I knew it....
Hello fellow pre-reader . What subjects are you studying and what level of study are you at?
I am studying Psychology, computer science and business.. wbu?
So this pre-study or w/e BS is very unhelpful. All study is pre-study, a lot of top students I knew read material which was not even on the reading list. let alone on a particular week's list.
There's a difference between pretending to know something and actually reading something you weren't supposed to read that week. If they use that material in class and you're ignorant of it, tough. They're not doing anything wrong. Step your game up.
You're coming across as petty and bitter here.
Students should read around the material, ask/answer questions, and show a willingness to engage and discuss the content. Instead of faulting them for it why don't you take it as an example to improve upon your own learning?
I do remember reading ahead to a ridiculous extent when I was in the younger years and trying far too hard to impress the teachers, but it took me a while to realise what it looked like.
