Do u get called on once or more than once???

One of my friends was telling me that you get called on unexpectedly only once throughout the semester.  And another friend said that the professor can call on you (from his list of students in the class) as many times as he wants but he makes sure to get every student at least once.  Which is it??  Or does it depend on the school and the professor?

It depends on the teacher.  There is no hard and fast rule that I know of.   They want you to be prepared and hold this over your head.

I was called on 32 consecutive days in my torts class. I'm serious! People were asking "what did you *do* to that guy?"

I haven't been called on at all, yet.  I guess I'm balancing out the odds for you guys.

Depends. I have one class that's all volunteer. Another that calls on people in alphabetical order, so you have an idea of which days to be exceptionally prepared on. The others vary.

What have you people seen happen when somebody gets called on, they are not prepared, etc.  Spill it.  Anybody pee their pants?  Just freeze up?  I used to be so afraid of being called on that I couldn't even focus on the lecture, let alone the question asked of me.

You spill the stories, I'll reveal the trick.  Deal?
