Not Terribly Observant
Economics. Seniors. They had an assignment that (I found out later) took them about half the period.
For the second half of the period (because they all did the assignment), they found other things to do. Quiet settled things. (A freshman class would have gone nuts.)
Fifth period. 15 minutes until the end. Two students from elsewhere walked in. Could they talk to Michael?
Sure, I said.
But no Michael made his way up to the front. Was Michael present? I hadn't marked him absent...
Michael was asleep. It took a minute or so to wake him...
Um... Well... Saying he wasn't the only sleeper doesn't make me look any better. Nor does admitting that I didn't notice the sleepers.
Does it look any better to know they had all completed their assigned work?
Yeah, I'll slink away now in shame...
