It’s finally the second semester and we get a second chance to start new classes. I know getting to know the professors and other students in the class can get tiring. It is important to make sure that we participate in class. I know it can be easy to just sit in the back of the class and just take notes but sometimes it is important to ask questions. Many professors notice when students are engaged in the lecture and have different views on what they are teaching.
Also, many professors have a part of the final grade that includes participation. It could help your grade improve not by a lot but it could make a C- up to a C or C+. Participating in class could help the class be more enjoyable. It’s never fun for the professor trying to pull the answers out of everyone. It’s better if the conversation in the class flows and is easy for people to join in. Overall don’t be the person that says the class is boring. First give the class a chance and try to involve yourself in the lecture. It is always better to ask questions than to sit in the back of the class and just take notes.
