1 .<-NARRATOR:-> Now listen to two students discussing the letter.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:-> Did you see this letter, Molly?
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, but I don't agree with him.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:-> Why not?
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, it might have some educational benefit for the people doing it,
2 .but overall, for the other students who are actually taking the classes, it wouldn't be good.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:-> How come?
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Because anyone who is taking the class for a grade... for credit... puts in a lot of time preparing for it, doing the reading and assignments...
2 .whereas people who aren't,
3 .they might not be as well prepared...
4 .and that would affect the quality of the class discussion.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:-> You mean the discussions wouldn't be at a very high level?
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Right, because people who aren't taking the class for a grade would be asking really basic questions...
2 .they'll be slowing down the class discussion by taking time to discuss basic stuff that was already covered in the reading assignments.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:-> That's a good point. I can see how that might happen.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Plus, he's wrong about the work it requires for the professor.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:-> But it's true the professor doesn't have to grade anything.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Sure, but there are lots of other, little things that can add up to more work...
2 .like they'd have to prepare extra handouts for the class,
3 .learn extra names... and, well, possibly stay after class to answer those students' questions.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I guess that's all extra work.
1 .<-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Absolutely.All these little things add up...
2 .and require the professor's attention.
