Hello all teachers and professors! I know you all read my Tumblr without exception, so this is a great place to talk about this.

Please stop assigning your students to interview cartoonists. I love students and I love doing interviews, but I can only do so much, and when you…

One of the most frustrating things about my program’s senior thesis project was the mandatory assignment to find people in the field of our work to ‘interview’—not because I didn’t want to talk to my heroes or think that listening to them isn’t valuable, but because I understood that they are professionals, with limited time and energy to expend on what amounted to unpaid work. The fact that my overall grade hinged on finding people gracious enough to speak to me (in a very small window of time to allow them to schedule it) was ridiculous, and the expectation that gratitude or a ””’thank you gift””’ somewhere down the line would be adequate compensation was patronizing both to me and the people I was expected to interview. Especially because I doubt that the people assigning us to do these interviews would accept a thank you card in return for their own valuable time.

All y’all who are following me and are going through the project right now, feel free to link the above post to the department if you’re having trouble. You shouldn’t be expected to a) ask professionals for a service for FREE when you’re being taught not to do the same, b) be put in a position where you may be viewed as unprofessional for the above reasons, or c) have your grade depend on the graciousness of other people outside your control.

Yes, absolutely!  And c) especially.  

Teachers and professors: please stop

Hello all teachers and professors!  I know you all read my Tumblr without exception, so this is a great place to talk about this.

Please stop assigning your students to interview cartoonists.  I love students and I love doing interviews, but I can only do so much, and when you have entire courses of students at multiple schools all trying to interview people at the same time, it just doesn’t work.  I get emails probably about once a week during the school year saying “Hi I go to school [REDACTED] I was assigned in class to interview to a cartoonist, can you answer the attached questions for me please?”

I can’t do them all.  So I have to say no (or not reply) and the student goes away thinking “Wow he couldn’t spare one HOUR to talk to me?  What a jerk.”  And then the student has to go begging to other people, which sucks, and I go away feeling like all I’m teaching these students is “people who are self-employed are usually busy and cannot accommodate every stranger who email them out of the blue with a request because their teacher told them to”, which also sucks. BEHOLD MY LEGACY.

If the goal is for students to find out more about what being a cartoonist is REALLY like, here are several interviews I’ve done that explore this:

There are similar Google searches for every other cartoonist you can think of!

On the other hand, if the goal is for the students to practice interviewing people, have them interview each other!  I bet they have lives that are even MORE interesting than the life of a guy who sits alone in front of a computer all day (ps: this is me) (ps: no regrets)

Okay, that’s all!  I know y’all do good work, but I just feel bad about shooting down students all the time and now since we’ve cleared the air here I’m sure this problem is resolved forever.
