Have you ever had a bad teacher?
Probably at least once, right?
There are a lot of different kinds of bad teachers. Some are mean. Some are inconsistent. Some don’t seem all that bright. And really… some just rub the wrong way.
By the end of this email, you’re going to know:
– how to increase the high scores your teacher gives you
– improve your relationship with every teacher from now on
– why “sucking up” is the WORST way to improve your grades
These kinds of teachers tend to breed a specific brand of student… perhaps best called… troublemakers.
Troublemakers aren’t necessarily bad students. There are some troublemakers that do surprisingly well in school. They’re called troublemakers just because they sometimes seem to like to stir things up a little. (And only a little. If they stir up all kinds of trouble then I would use a more serious term than troublemaker.)
Have you ever watched a student ask a question that was downright rude?
Or seen a student blatantly ignoring a teacher’s boring lecture (maybe reading a book or something?)
Or seen a student say or do anything that might make you think, “why are you poking the bear?”
Being in the room with a troublemaker can be a mixed bag. Sometimes it a lot of fun. Sometimes it’s just irritating.
Troublemakers (especially the smart ones) are often born of resentment…
They get annoyed by the teacher. And their need for justice encourages them to poke and jab in every borderline acceptable way. They’re more passive aggressive than aggressive but the teacher gets the message…
And when teachers get that message…
the troublemaker doesn’t win…
As much as folks love to imagine teachers as perfectly objective, I think we know that’s wrong. Teachers are human. If a teacher likes a student then the student will have advantages. If a teacher doesn’t like the student then they’ll suffer a bit.
(And yes… most teachers try to account for it.)
Troublemaking can be fun.
It can be a relief.
And at times in my life, I’ve indulged in it…
Since then – I’ve learned there is a better way.
(There is no sweeter relief to bad teachers than the knowledge that they couldn’t stop you… even if they tried. Even the worst teachers can’t stop a student that has the right tools and the right drive. KAIC can help you with that. It’s our longest lasting and best-selling ebook/audiobook package.)
You don’t need to make trouble when you’re whole routine becomes a game that you’re able to win. And radical politeness to crazy teachers can actually give you even more control.
When you’re poking the bear – that teacher has stories to tell about how you’re causing problems. When you’re perfectly polite – you’re the only one with stories to tell.
But here is the thing…
Try to get a teacher like you actively!
1. This will make you look like a geek.
2. The teacher will not like you more. (People instinctively do the opposite.)
3. Want to know more…
