Assignment 8B

The concept of “Questioning Authority”  in the context of Meszaros reading means who is in charge academically. Meszaros says that everyone in a college has knowledge from a professor to a librarian. Yet when we have tests or some school work we prefer to ask other students then the professor or another faculty member. Now the question is who has authority over the learning student. Either other students because we feel more comfortable, yourself because we trust our opinions more then facts, or a professor because he is the one who gives us the A. The he talks about librarians and how we don’t see them as an authority because we don’t depend on them for our academic outcome. At the end of the day the authority is the one who has cognitive abilities that help you as a student feel confident and help you succeed. It does not matter weather it is a professor or a librarian.
