I'm a student who likes to fly under the radar in my classes. So when a professor has been calling on me more times in the first weeks of school than I was called on during my entire second year of law school, I have to ask: Does the professor call on me because he likes what I have to say, or is he looking for me to crash and burn in front of 40 of my collegues?

Discuss.

Yes.

I think, your professor is just hoping that if he keeps calling on you, maybe you will stop blogging in the middle of his class. =P

Marilyn-- Smart ass. I don't blog in class anymore. Too many people think they know me as it is... :)

Like "Murderer's Row", he's calling on you cause you're now in his lineup. At the bottom of the hour, when he's got nothing left in the tank, he like's to go to his sweet spot -- The BLS. Enjoy it. After all, 10 more shopping months until the Bar Exam.

I have often wondered the same thing, especially where a prof suddenly discovers me and then proceeds to call on me in every. single. class. My personal opinion is that he/she wants to watch me crash and burn; and god do I work hard to not let that happen.

Definitely wants to bang you. Could be worse. Could be raining...

To quote some Cleveland from Family Guy: Oh, that's nasty!

if you answer questions well, and the rest of the class are hungover deadbeats, he'll call on you just to keep the momentum going. you have become a reliable backup to his teaching method. perhaps you amuse him. that's always nice.

Probably the latter: he wants to see you crash and burn.

Take heart. I just ran across another student who seems to be crashing and burning with his state Bar.
