wovenloaf March 23, 2016 Share March 23, 2016 Mr. EB was one of those rare undergrad TAs and he was paid, but he didn't get the grad student rate. It was decent money (more than minimum wage) but not an exorbitant amount of money. He graded all of the papers and exams, so basically what Lip was hired to do. Luckily Mr. EB's professor showed up sober and on time so Mr. EB never got stuck teaching the class. Yeah, when I was in undergrad, I wasn't even a "TA" to a particular professor, I was just a "Department Aide" in a department that wasn't even my major. But several professors would have me grade exams for them during my office hours. Not for upper level classes, but for the intro courses, me grading the exams was common. So Lip grading papers isn't necessarily that weird to me. Teaching the class, on the other hand, that did seem weird. But I saw that as a function of the professor being drunk and not showing up, not as actually being part of Lip's job description. 1 Link to comment
