“Teaching with love, at the end of the semester I had students in my office complaining because they did not receive the grade that they thought they would have received. After all, I cared about them. Their sense of my love/care was that it would lead me to give them higher grades than they deserved. I had this experience several times. Finally, I openly discussed at the start of the each new class that there would be no correlation between my loving a student and the student’s grade, that the grade would be solely determined by the quality of the work.” bell hooks, Teaching Community, 2003.
