A comprehensive guide to discovering the best teachers at your school or college and learning everything you can from them. Throughout the book, case studies provide real-life examples of how to put ideas into practice. The writing combination of a professor and student provides readers with both perspectives. You should learn: what resources to check and what questions to ask in selecting an instructor; how to evaluate professors based on the first class sessions; what to look for in a syllabus and grading policies; and the importance of instructor feedback and accessibliity. The authors reveal strategies to maximize your classroom experience, such as: how to identify a professor's teaching style and expectations, and how to adapt to them; and ways to get a teacher to notice you and take an interest in your learning experience. Even the most outgoing students can expect only limited contact with their professors, so the authors also provide tactics to take full advantage of meetings outside of regular class time, such as: how and when to approach an instructor; how to prepare for the meeting; ways to phrase questions to get the answers you need; the benefits of making at least one follow-up visit to teachers after the semester ends; ways to build your relationship and get invaluable feedback; and tips on how to get the best recommendations from professors.
