The class was advanced ELD (English Language Development). 9th graders. I had them for two periods.
During the first period, they were to read chapter six of The Outsiders and answer some questions. Almost everybody pulled out a book. All but one.
"I forgot my book."
After exhausting a couple other options, I hit upon a solution. He could do the assignment for the second hour first, then he could borrow another student's book to do the reading during the second hour. Perfect, right?
"Let me check again..."
Lo and behold, he "found" the book at the bottom of his backpack.
Freshmen. *shakes head*
