8 incredibly bold things students ask or tell teachers these days
Teaching today and teaching before the 21st century present two different sets of challenges. Our favourite cartoonist Daryl Cagle puts it perfectly (we suggest you check out his fantastic comic site for more such cartoons):
Here are some questions today’s students ask or request they make to teachers. If you’re a student, see if you’ve tried any of them out. If you’re a teacher, maybe you’ve heard of some of them.
The it’s-technology’s-fault student. He owns all the latest gadgets.
The last-minute student who also blames technology. Best friend of student above.
The evil teacher who didn’t let students choose their group members.
The tips-digger. Everyone knows he’s really snooping for exam questions.
Deadline? What deadline?
The Apple student who has no apple juice.
The boy who isn’t afraid to ask. Teachers are sometimes not sure if he’s joking, earnest, or just pushing his luck.
The longer-recess-please student. Cute when young.
So, how many of these can you related to as a student or teacher?
