Expecting too much?

Do you ever feel as if you're expecting too much from your students?  Because the way I see it, stupidity couldn't be a problem for this many students, could it??  Are the instructions not clear enough?  Are the questions/assignments really that difficult? 

What do you do when you feel like this?

Comments

I agree. Most students who earn poor grades in my classes do so not because they are dumb, but because they don't prioritize my class. That's fine; they can prioritize whatever they like. It doesn't upset me. But it does upset me when students spend the semester deprioritizing my class, and then at the very end expect me to make them my top priority when they suddenly decide they aren't happy with the grades they have been earning.
