Vermeld het aantal woorden. Lees eerst onderstaande tekst. Je mag de informatie uit dit artikel gebruiken, maar het hoeft niet. Gebruik je de informatie wel, neem dan geen letterlijke zinnen over. Denk aan de juiste opbouw en controleer je werk als je klaar bent op (spel-)fouten en interpunctie. Lever je essay in de les van a.s. vrijdag 21 februari in of digitaal voor maandag 23.59.

Have a look at the following quotes.

“Do you think students know what good teaching looks like? Do you think students can tell the difference between a highly effective teacher and a struggling teacher?”
“Every week our students rank each course and professor, and the results are made public for all to see.”
“Student evaluations are a poor indicator of professor performance. The good news is that college students often reward instructors who teach well. The bad news is that students often conflate good instruction with pleasant ambience and low expectations.”
“Evaluations extend the interaction that helps both teacher and learner contemplate their experiences. Learning is a relationship.”
“Students can be fickle, and the comments reflect that – one day a teacher is loved, and on the next, reviled, maybe because of a pop quiz or a poor grade.”
3. Done?
  1. Do exercise A from the handout on if-sentences.
