As promised in last week’s post, this post is about the characteristics of good teachers.
Throughout your college career, you’re going to (if you haven’t already) run into teachers who are difficult. I don’t mean the good-gosh-his-tests-are-hard difficult, I mean the I-think-my-teacher-might-be-at-least-partially-evil difficult. These instructors are often unfair, unprofessional, and disrespectful. Here’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi list of how to use the Force to your advantage and save your GPA from the Dark Side’s grasp.

They should also help you to go after an awesome (if not perfect) grade point average by allowing you to focus your efforts and not spread yourself too thin.
