Super Talkative Professor Saying Nonsense...How do I stop Her?

February 14, 2007 2:53am CST
i am almost finished taking up one major subject concerning early childhood education. the problem is, my professor don't realize that we learn Nothing from her except her pasts. She keeps on "teaching"/talking about her personal life which is definitely far far from the course description that we should be learning. We are running out of time. Class will end in few weeks now. How do i tell her to stop talking about her personal experiences and move on to our topic/ course title before this semester ends? How?

Well if im in your situation, ill definitely tell her to stop like in a good way. I will ask her some questions that will lead her to go back to our topic, then that's it. I'm sure she will go back to her lessons then if she tends to add her own life with the topic, i will ask her again if its really helps us to actually listen to her life even it's not related on the topic.

It is hard to deal with someone like this. You could take the straight forward approach and go to see her with the course outline and say something like you have been going through the course outline in order to revise and you aren't sure when certain concepts were covered, could she please tell you? Maybe also ask for revision material. The other approach would be to maybe tape or record a lecture and then go to the faculty head and outline your concerns. I would also be looking for back up from other students in this situation. If you have to pass an exam it is important that you are familiar with the content.
