A Question of Semantics
Ok, after a massive increase in unfortunate incidents and attitudes, I have decided I need something in my syllabus that makes it clear that if you are rude to me in class, I reserve the right to flunk your butt. If you are belligerent, argumentative, and start shouting at me when I ask you to please be quiet, please do not interrupt class, please cite your work, etc., I reserve the right to flunk your butt. Flunk it right to Hell-o Kitty.
Now, I ask you, gentle readers, how to word that. Anybody else have a “watch your attitude” clause?
