The first e-mail rolled into my account. It began in a great way, an attempt to compliment me on being a good teacher. However, the compliment failed as the student misspelled my name in the greeting. And addressed me as "Mr." Last time I checked, I was very obviously female. Not even Prof. or Dr. but Mr.?!?!?!?
Moving past that little (what the heck) BIG faux pas, the student then proceeded to ask me to drop the lowest "quiz" grade. I believe he actually meant exam in his statement.... since this was directly after he received the score of his not-so-great exam. However, due to the massive amount of grammatical errors and misspelled words, I am a tad unsure to the true meaning of his e-mail. I responded very politely (although I had to resist the urge to write back to Ms. Student) and informed him that if he reviewed his syllabus he would recall that the lowest quiz grade is in fact dropped, however all exams will count towards the final grade.
I don't think that was the answer he wanted.
