My Bad Teachers
Myers blogs about bad teachers. In my high school days I had two teachers that were really good - my math and chemistry teachers. Part of it was due to the fact that I actually liked taking those courses, but I also liked their teaching styles (the math teacher was a little weird, but a nice guy). I had one bad teacher - the guy who taught history. He made history so boring I could barely stand it. He had been at the school for so long that some of my friend's parents who had him as their teacher and had somehow saved their notebooks from their high school days had the exact same notes that their kids did. His overheads were turning yellow - they were so old. That really turned me off towards history, but I'm starting to gain an appreciation for it as I grow older.
