Anatomy and Physiology. They were working on a review for their Integumentary System unit. (Yeah, I have no idea what that means, either.)
They had laptops "for reference" as well as their textbooks. And as I do, I walked the room and specifically looked at computer screens to make sure they were not watching a soccer match, a fight, or playing that pool game that they all seem to be on about these days.
I didn't see much of that. However, what I did see was kind of disturbing. And gross. And completely on task.
Part of their assignment was to look up various skin ailments. And illustrate them.
Some were drawing. Others had printed pictures and were cutting and gluing them down to their papers. And the images...
I'm squeamish. I found it best if I didn't look too closely.
At least they were on task. And it was pretty easy to spot those that weren't. I could actually look at what they were doing.
