dido Posted February 20, 2005 Report Share Posted February 20, 2005 I love corrections (duh) and I have begun to notice that a few of my teachers tend to over explain or appologize for their corrections. Partially this is because it's very frequently the same damn thing (shoulders, elbows up, heels down in demi plie) and I SWEAR I am listening; I write them down, review them before class and am making progress; but I am beginning to wonder if it might be the face/manner with which the corrections are received. My face is very square and immobile with a teeny little mouth and though I always nod and immediately re-do the movement/correct it I am afraid that the expression of seriousness is coming off as "irritated by correction." But a smile doesn't seem appropriate (unless I'm totally botching it--in which case I laugh and run to join the second group)? Anybody got any advice? Quote Link to comment
