Alternately titled: Muahahahahaha!
Mrs. Chili is enjoying a little bit of an evil teacher moment.
On Monday, I discovered that Elaina has a toy on her desk that can turn paper copies into PDF attachments. I asked her to please work that magic for a handout that I had given my freshman class that morning. She did, and I promptly attached that sucker to the homework assignment on the class’s website.
This evening, I received this email from one of the students in the class:
Seeing how I was absent on Monday, I have no idea what the homework is, and I was sidetracked today to ask you about it. So I hope you would understand I don’t get the homework.
Um, no. Sorry, Kiddo; you lose. Here was my reply:
In fact, Megan, it’s not okay that you didn’t do the homework. As soon as the class was over on Monday, I uploaded a PDF of the reading, along with a pretty clear description of the assignment, to the class’s web page. You have everything available to you that you need; there’s no reason you can’t get it done.
Let’s see if the homework gets handed in tomorrow. Any bets?
