Exams test teaching ability by Jake Guinta Collegian Staff Writer Most everyone who reads this newspaper has been in this situatioi before: it's a test day. A student stares with empty eyes at the center of < vast, blank piece of paper. His vision is blurred, and he dreads what thi next question may bring. Of course, there is also the teacher, standing at the head of the clas: with a self-righteous look as if to say, "You should know this—most of i anyway.'' That's how they remain for an hour, and with each passing minute, th< student's hate for the teacher swells. At the same time, the teach© becomes more defensive, knowing that the test is perfectly fair or ver< close. These attitudes, which are very common and accurate, display < blatant breakdown in the system—testing in particular. Webster writes that a test is "an event, etc., that tries one's qualities.' Obviously, all tests try the student's ability to learn, but in as much as i test tries t...

The man behind the myth by Susanna Jalosky Collegian Staff Writer Sitting in the lobby with hands full of -crumpled ones and loose change—money that was probably meant for the laundry machine 01 stamps—are students from every residence hall on campus.

Christinas Bazaar puts trimming on the tree by Julie Karasinski Collegian Feature Editor Have you been to Millcreek Mall lately? If so, you may have noticed some rather-odd things about your surroundings: evergreen trees covered with colorful bulbs, sparkling silver tinsel and twinkling lights with a star or angel on top, right in store windows (Don't trees grow in the forest? )! Or maybe you happened across a train in the corridor, running on tracks that are set around a snow covered castle. Perhaps you saw a large bearded man in a red suit, laughing, with children on his lap. What's going on? Stores are preparing for Christmas, that's what! The same phenomenon is coming to Behrend, hi the form of the Inter Club Council sponsored Christmas bazaar. On Dec. 1, 2, and 3 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the first floor of the Reed Union Building, clubs and organizations will have an opportunity to raise funds for their treasuries by setting up tables and selling goods of all kin...

Explanation point! by Kevin Mills ,. Collegian Staff Writer Another bright, clear morning dawns lightly on Behrend College. You are walking past Turnbull on the way to Dobbins (presumably to enjoy another "Ala Board" meal) when you encounter a group of three or four beings coming your way. You don't recognize them-, but their appearance is striking—the long hair, the beards and mustaches, the "I'm A Beatles Fan" buttons. What's this, you gasp? Hippies in the Age of the Yuppie? They cross your path now, talking excitedly of Shakespeare and something called iambic pentameter. Later, over a beer, you ask your roommate if iambic pentameter was some weird kind of social disease Shakespeare died of or what, ¦ and he replies; "Shakespeare wrote plays in iambic pentameter, Bill. Those weren't hippies you saw—you must've run across some English Majors." Ah, yes, English Majors. The students who constantly correct one's "grammar." The guys who get laughed out of the dorms when their r...

REVIEW by Paul Miniger Collegian Staff Writer Fall is the best time for Pretenders music. ¦ The changing leaves and rainy weather instill rock and roll thoughts in the minds of those making the most of the longer evening hours. The air is cool and so is the music. It is no coincidence that the Pretenders should release another f,all/winter album. -Get Close is the latest effort by Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders, and like many other Pretenders albums, Hynde is the driving force behind the music. A sultry voice atop electric guitar riffs have long been a Pretenders trademark, and Get Close is no exception. In fact, most of the music on the album is remeniscent of earlier ¦ Pretenders works. However, it is not quite the same.. . A chain of tragic events including the breakup with Ray Davies and the death of a band member have extinguished the fire from Chrissie Hynde's lyrics. Instead of the usual biting sarcastic comments, we hear a sentimentality that is uncommon since the day...
