So, jumping in was easy.
Freshman English. The kiddos were working on a vision board with goals for this new year. (They do a lot of planning and goal setting things in freshman English. It's perfect for kiddos starting high school.) Their goals needed to be SMART goals, and while the vision board (done via Google Slides) was mostly finished, the kiddos hadn't quite hit all the specific requirements, so Ms. W was pointing those out so they'd get full points for the assignment.
Because they were mostly finished, Ms. W gave them a reflection assignment to also complete.
Period three. Class had barely started. Ms. W was explaining what mistakes she was seeing in the project.
Cassius typed into chat that he was finished with the assignment.
Rather than reiterate that maybe perhaps he should check to make sure he hadn't made any of the mistakes that Ms. W was seeing, I responded (via the chat) that there was a reflection assignment to do.
Ms. W moved on to explaining what she needed them to do in the reflection assignment. She had barely finished when Cassius said he had finished that.
I went in and checked. He had answered the first two questions very well. Then there was a page break, and no more answers to questions. Sigh.
So, I told Cassius that he had to finish page two.
My job was to check over the reflection assignment, and when that was complete I could dismiss the students. So, via the chat, they'd say they were done, and I'd check.
I had dismissed a couple students when Cassius asked if he could go. I double checked his assignment. He hadn't added anything. So, I repeated that he needed to complete the second page.
I continued checking the assignments. I dismissed a couple more students.
Cassius popped up again. He finally found page two, and he had done it.
Alas, there were still issues he needed to fix. I added comments so he'd know, and then I told him to check the assignment.
But, Cassius had already left the meet. I guess he thought it was done or something. Sigh.
After class, Ms. W said she wasn't surprised. Cassius had a tendency to half-ass assignments. He'd get distracted, walk away from the computer, or such.
Not surprising, really. At that age, it is kinda typical.
