One of the hardest things I have in teaching
is grading. Not deciding on the quality of the work. Nor even assigning a grade to the work. But rather, dealing with students who just don't understand the material, past a certain level. I see a lot of heterogeneity in ability to learn what I teach. A lot is background. A lot is desire. But some is native ability in the topic. I just cannot seem to push all the students past a certain level. Some, even most, yes. But not all. And it bothers me--I could do better reaching those students. What to do? How can I improve?
