Ellen Bremen has written the book we college professors wish every student would read. Say This, Not That to Your Professor addresses all those issues we gripe about in the hallway. Professor Bremen explains to students why they should proof their emails to their professors, why texting in class is disruptive, and why professors HATE the question, Are we doing anything important today? Even better, she shows students how to take ownership of their own education. The book is easy to read but has lots of practical information and sample conversations to help students learn what it means to be a professional. I've suggested to our provost that we purchase a copy for every incoming first-year student!
