Do Antagonizing Professor Comments Impact Student Learning?

Hat tip to Kirsha Trychta (West Virginia) for pointing out an article in The Conversation about a professor's experiment in comparing learning between groups of students who did/did not attend a video lecture in which the professor was intentionally a jerk (his term) to actors who portrayed students. The students who attended the antagonistic lecture scored lower on a follow-up quiz. The interesting article can be found here. (Amy Jarmon)
