"Rate Your Students" Rates "Canaries..."
I'd like to thank the people at Rate Your Students for mentioning this blog. Their criticism of the blog is well taken as it does lack "anything approaching wit or style." After 25 years of teaching, I've substituted "sight gags" and "silly voices" for anything approaching written satire, depending much more on Buster Keaton for my pedagogical inspiration than Jonathan Swift. Well crafted sarcasm and humorous social commentary have only gotten me in trouble with administrators and students alike. I am just so out of practice.
