Final Review?

The lesson plan was a bit vague:
Work on review for final. Continue reading and outlining chapter 25. 
Good enough.

I explained this to the class: "Ms. G would like you to review for your final and/or continue outlining chapter 25."

Hand in air: "Can we review for our final?"

Okay, seriously? I mean, it's not like I haven't encountered this sort of thing before. But I expected better of them.

It was an AP class.


  1. HA! I guess they really wanted me to make sure. The teacher I work with has a great strategy for that. She says, "Ask a colleague," or "Who can tell her what I said?"

  2. There is no such thing as a stupid question. I heard that from someone once. And the lovely thing about teachers, is they make you do things over and over until you get it right and they have infinite patience.

    Hang in there, Liz.

  3. Perhaps you said the first part of the sentence in another language. Or he only heard the last three words that you said.
