I finally made it back to the continuation high school. It's been a while.
English class. Their assignment was online. (This is becoming more and more common. I think it's a good thing. And since I can fix the majority of the issues that crop up, I'm good with it.)
The assignment had them reading an article and an excerpt of the U.S. Constitution (yes, really), and then they had questions to go along with their reading. It looked to be a pretty straightforward assignment.
So, I was surprised to find the students Googling things. No, they weren't looking at random sites. (Well, they did do that, too.) No, they were Googling the questions to the assignment.
Um, why? The answers to the questions were in the reading. And the reading was part of their assignment.
"But I couldn't find it," they complained. Funny, I found the answers while looking over their shoulders and skimming...
Well, there's a reason they're at the continuation high school...
