The other day in class, a student 'passed' when the professor called the student's name. I couldn't believe it! It wasn't a dramatic moment such as that scene with Professor Kingsfield when he gave the student a quarter to call his mother to tell her he wasn't going to be a lawyer. Our professor quietly said 'OK' and picked someone else to carry the ball for that case.
I have to say in the student's defense that this professor doesn't give definite reading assignments on a class-by-class basis. We're given what we're supposed to read for the whole semester at the start of the semester and sort of guess the pace at which we are supposed to read.
Having said that, I'm glad it didn't happen to me.
