it just clicked that this whole argument is stemming from the fact that I *am* questioning what my
teachers are telling me. They say CS Lewis is important, I say he's not. Fuck it.
helpful) story from my own education:
The exam question was something like "Why did Blah D. Blah do such & such? Provide details."
the instructor had put it on the page:
did Blah D. Blah do such & such? Provide details.
I missed the "why", answered the question in the negative (No, he didn't, and here's my reasoning.
The instructor marked it wrong, but when we went over the exam, I saw what had happened, caught
up with the instructor after class, and successfully explaineded my answer to the instructor's satisfaction,
and got full credit.
If the instructor actually has it wrong, you should be willing to say so, and prepared to defend the position.
Worst they can do is.... well, give you an F (or whatever the UK university equivalenty is...) but maybe they'll
respect you a bit more....
