Greek update

Greek has commenced for the week. It turns out that what I spent hours translating and re-translating on Friday was a quiz, not the text! *gulps* There's got to be a better way. To advocate or not to advocate?

The rest of the class has the answer key to the exercises in the book. I have it--in print. That obviously does not help me unless I have a reader. I don't have a reader. So I proposed that my homework get graded in lieu of testing. It was an acceptable solution. I feel a hundred pounds lighter. I can spend today actually catching up on my notes and doing a few homework esercises to get up to speed.

This means I won't be doing exactly the same work as the rest of the class; but Im learning the same material, and as the professor said the point is for me to understand it.

I'm so glad that your professor is willing to compromise with you and find a solution that allows him to know that you are still learning the class material-- even if it's not exactly the same way everyone else is doing it. I've found myself in a few of those "uh oh" situations and totally panicked because of feeling at the mercy of the instructor.

Oh, this is so wonderful! Isn't it great when the professor is able and willing to see that even though you're not doing the exact work as the others that you are still learning and understanding what he's teaching? What a relief!
