Talking in Section
I feel like every time I say nothing in section, the TA knows I didn't do the reading, and this has been proven several times by their lowering of my grade at the end of the semester when I'm on the borderline. BUT there are always shy, meek girls (and some guys) in class who never say anything- whether it's because they're too shy or because they didn't do the reading, I don't know- and I know from anecdotal evidence that they don't get docked for class participation. That is so fucking unfair. My new plan is to not be boisterous before or after class so the TA doesn't know that I'm talkative and I get mistaken for being shy.
