Missing the Point
It was the Monday after winter break. Special ed English. Before the break, the class had ripped out a story from their workbooks in anticipation of their teacher being out this day. We passed out their stories...
Halfway through the period and one boy had made no progress whatsoever on the assignment. I went over to prod him along.
"But I haven't read this story before..."
Um... Yeah, I know. That was the, um, assignment. To read the new-to-you story. And then answer the questions.
Did he really think I was that stupid? Or, is he really that oblivious? (I vote the latter.)
