    1. We've been unable to locate the strip to give a necessary credit. Can you help direct us? All the links we've found, about 40, take us only to Cheezburger.com. We'd love to credit the real site and artist. Any help you can offer would be much appreciated.

    4. Yes, any comics with that look are typically Zach's. If you go to the site and search for keywords in the archive, they're pretty easy to locate. Thanks for updating it! :-)

  3. The end of "Generation X Goes to College" by Peter Sacks has an excellent perspective on this. I agree with it: for the seemingly increasingly rare students who really do want to learn, I have nothing but time. I therefore design my courses for students like them, students like I was, and do my best to ignore the rest.

    It's not this simple, however. About 10% of our students are fully engaged. They'll learn, no matter what we do. About 20% of our students are fully disengages. They won't learn, no matter what we do (and I hope those student loans are worth it). That big bunch in the middle do deserve some time and effort, since they can be helped, sometimes. Sometimes I wonder whether I spend too much on them.
