Have you ever corrected your teacher?

I did last weeek. My World Religions teacher made attributed something to Christ that Paul said and I corrected him. Click here to enlarge It was reflex. He didn't seem to care but I felt so very small after I did it. Click here to enlarge

Nope... but that's not to say I wouldn't question information I knew to be inaccurate. Click here to enlarge

Yup, more than once. Having ph.d in one area does not make a person right all the time..but maybe we should not tell them that Click here to enlarge

Seriously, many of my classes are run seminar style so it just isn't an issue. My anthro prof.is very anti-fertility treatments and is open about her bias. I, on the other hand, have been dealing with IF for 10 years. When we deal with the topic (I have taken her multiple times) I often correct or add to what she says. She doesn't mind and likes to have the extra information. In a regular lecture I wouldn't raise my hand to do it as I just don't care that much. It all just depends on the prof and style of class.
