Interruptions during a class

by Lauren
(New Mexico, US)

I am in a short finance class. It is only 5 weeks and there is much to cover. During class one woman constantly interrupts to ask questions that often are later answered.


I am finding it difficult to follow the class since she is always stopping the flow of the class by asking questions that are often either not related or will be answered at due time.

Last night I felt so frustrated because we are not covering as much as we could because of her interruptions.

What can I do? I dont wish to be rude...

Thanks for any reply..

Lauren

Speak to the lecturer privately
by: Eunice

Ask to see your lecturer after class and have a private conversation with her.

Request her to keep your conversation private and not reveal your identity in case she asks for class feedback.

Some lecturers enjoy students asking questions...it makes them feel heard, more important. It also assures them that they are doing it right, being effective. They may not know other students find her class hard to follow.
