The Learning Myth

I hate to come across righteous or patronizing, but I think this needs to be said. Somewhat frequently I am reminded by the students that I am too demanding and, especially for the Arts majors in science, that the students are struggling beyond what is "expected". My usual rhetoric is to say that my criteria are a reflection of respect: I believe in my students, given that they are the intellectual centerfold of our future, and the more highly I regard them, the more I expect of them. Here is another take at making the same point, from a completely different perspective (and my hands are clean on this one): The Learning Myth.
