ah yes, because we all interpret things the exact same way. it doens't matter if the other helped write it, the teacher interpreted it differently, or wrong if you prefer.

The student's task isn't to have the same interpretation as the teacher and to write an essay about it, it's to write a decent essay with a properly formulated interpretation regardless of the interpretation. And it's the teacher's task to give a grade based on wether it's a good essay, not wether it's a good interpretation since 'bad interpretations' don't exist while bad essays do.

Teachers grade content too because they want you to critically think, not just appear like you know what you're talking about.

Books, no.
Poems, yes.

A book is a physical manifest of an authors message to the reader.
A poem is for the reader to interpret what the message is.

I think he meant that maybe various people take things differently. We may interpret very similar, but what we take out of it may differ as greatly as the difference the next person is to us.

To be fair the post never mentioned that the teacher marked the student down. She can simply disagree with what the son of Ian McEwan because she has a different view on it and that does not make her wrong. She just found a different way of looking at it, if anyone is to blame it is the author for not making the interpretation clear enough.

Sadly some teachers don't accept anything their way. I've had English teachers ask for our opinion and it turns out she would only mark one point of view as right, some of the ********* essays got through for just agreeing with her.

I always wished that there would be a required lack of bias test to an extent of course in schools. It seems like people who teach our children can affect their view points quite easily, just by saying what's right and wrong. Difference in opinion should not be shunned or marked as incorrect.

i had an english assignment once to write an essay on a poem
i thought it was hopeless drivel
there was no meaning behind the words no rhythm to the lines just nothing
but the english teacher liked it god knows why
so when i write my essay on it criticising it as i see it i got a full blown fail
a friend of mine litraly just wrote down exactly what the teacher said about it in class and got the top mark

I have to disagree with you. I had an English teacher that taught us to think about the influence an author's surroundings has on his work - so in the all famous example of curtains being blue, sure, maybe the author didn't intend for it to mean that the house is a sad place, or maybe he subconsciously wrote it that way. Just because an author didn't intend to be influenced by something doesn't mean he wasn't.

All it says is the teacher disagreed with the interpretation. That doesn't mean the kid got a low mark.

Everyone's forgetting that the point of any English class is develop an argument, interpretation, or meaning of a specific piece of literature, and then defend it with reasoning, argument, quotes, examples, and any other form of documented academic source. The fact that any of the other comments people of interest received high marks is due to their ability to argue and correlate their arguments with the text in question. McEwan's son must have either made a bad argument, or the teacher was a self-righteous prick who thought he or she had the be all/end all answer to Endureing Love.

From my experience, reading a synopsis is usually all it takes, and then google some things like setting and symbolism.
You still need to put in some work, but you can get a good grade on book analysises and seminars without reading the actual book.

When I have to write about a book I download an e-book version of it and use ctrl+f and keywords to find passages I need.

My most recent paper was 7 pages on the book "Masters of Death", which was about the Holocaust. One of my points was psychological impact of mass murder. So I just searched for words like "breakdown" and "psych".

Finished the paper in 1.5 hours with 30 citations and the only part of the book I actually read was the cited sections.

Colfield (I can't remember) was a landhockey, hockey or fencing, **** I can't remember who was in charge of the equipment. It had nothing to do with baseball other than it had a slight sports problem in the begining of the book. the rest was Colfield living in New York without his parents. He did return, but that was just to give his sister an LP.

My senior year we were made to write a paper on the origins of Easter and what they meant to us. I'm an atheist, I know, hurrdurr fedora but I was unbiased. I included Eostre, Ishtar, the spring solstice and yes, even Jesus. i went into great detail about it's origins as a celebration of fertility and described how the egg and bunny were symbolic and I got the paper back that said, "Wrong answer, there was no holiday there before Jesus came back" and got a 0 on it despite having cited my sources. I'm looking for the news article now but basically she went from teaching AP English at Vista Ridge high School in Leander, TX which is a nice high school to teaching this hood little school where they had to have several cops on duty and a metal detector at every entrance because of me.

That's what she gets for being a self-righteous cunt.

They wanted a standardized paper with their POV written on it.

It's video. It's him saying it out loud. Unless you're saying the video is shopped or that's not really the author I think it's right...

Reminds me of a thing I read once where Ray Bradbury allegedly visited a class to talk about Fahrenheit 451 and they told him he was wrong about the underlying theme of his own book.

I always feel like a lot of the authors we look at simply wrote a book and we're dissecting and gleaming information from the way it is written that really isn't there.

Outside the anglosphere it's pretty common use numbers and fractions like 7/10 or 95.5/100 for grading

Everyone on the school hated her, the honor roll of her class was %100 female. we even made an experiment to check if out thoughts were ture or if we just sucked at the class, we had two firends of ours a girl and a dude, have the exact same paper and turn it in for homework, as planned, he got a 4/10, and she got a 9/10

That's not true, after studying some literature (much to my dismay) , the ******* authors are nuts and usually the interpretations are correct.
However if you'd replace the "What the author actually meant" with "What truly matters" you would get a less funny but more correct pic.

When I was in high school I knew plenty of people who claimed they got poor marks because the teacher was stupid/tyrannical/just hated their guts for no reason.
99% of the time they were the kids who misbehaved in class and generally were rude to the teachers.
I'm not saying there isn't such a thing as a bad teacher, there definitely are plenty of bad teachers. I'm just pointing out that sometimes students blame teachers for their own inadequacies.

Yup, pretty much. There were always students in my English classes that would complain that the work was too hard or they didn't understand. I've always been good with English, and I put little effort into the class. However, everyone is different and some people are not good at English. Those people (the ones who complain) need to put in the effort that is required of them to get a good grade.

Also, students being rude towards the teacher or talking about the teacher behind his back would annoy me. I was far from a brown-noser, but I treated my teachers with the respect they deserve.

The thing is, and this is exactly what makes all schooling before college suck, your personality shouldn't matter at all. The way you study, shouldn't matter at all. If two people produce exactly the same results, (such as is the case where tests are done in multiple choice), the grade should be exactly the same.

A person who attends every class shouldn't get a higher grade than one who doesn't attend at all, simply because the teachers decided that the best way to study is in class.

This is my fault but I kinda laugh about it now.

My friend and I took art 2d together and half the time he would take my drawings edit them a little and turn them in. I didn't care much until she held up one of his edits exclaiming how great it was, I couldn't believe it. I was gonna say something about it being mine and it clicked...

My Latin teacher back in high-school had a hard-on for a friend of mine in the class. She copied one of my tests (I let her as I owed her a favor), and got a %10 higher grade than I did.
