"I would recommend that you keep a dictionary close at hand or open a reference guide in Word or some other application to double check your assumptions before questioning your professor's use of a term."
My professor sent this to me in an email after I wrote him this email:
I was just wondering if you intentionally used the word fate in the first DB? When I was rereading through it I noticed that your opening statement was:
"This has been the fate of tribal, or indigenous peoples virtually everywhere."
And then to say to me after my response that "fate has nothing to do with aculturation" seems contradictory...
Is that a threat? And why do I feel like he is attacking me? I feel like writing something b%tchy back but I want others opinions... I need to get a good grade in this class!!
