A placeholder tonight as nothing of importance happened today except things very much like things that happened yesterday.
My bad higher level class was bad. My lower level class wasn’t quite as bad. My worst students in my high school class were bad.
The only funny thing was in my high school class. My worst students were third in line for their presentation but rather than prepare for it (it helps to practice even though they don’t have to memorize it) they were doing homework from other classes.
When I called their number the moseyed up to the front and then 1) couldn’t figure out who was speaking first or 2) what order their pictures were supposed to be in. I sent them off to get their s#!t together.
One student realized that thanks to his partners he was about to fail and managed to salvage something resembling a presentation by playing stage manager. Unfortunately he’s right. He is going to fail because of this partners. That’s one of the rules of the assignment.
