- From a parent, via email this morning:
- From students:
Me: "What are you having trouble with?"
Child: "Everything. This whole quarter."
Child: "What should I do if I don't learn by reading and writing things down?"
One child raised his hand no less than a dozen times to explain to me why I should be assigning extra credit to help their grades between now and, well, their exam on Tuesday.
After explaining that extra credit was not what they needed if they were displeased with their grades at this point (and that I would not be giving any extra credit), another child boldly asked if I would be giving extra credit for third quarter.
GT students, people. It's frightening.
