As I was passing back quizzes this morning, everyone’s attention was drawn to the fact that several had clearly been ripped apart and taped back together. This forced me to make the following announcement:
“I must apologize to you. My dog chewed up your quizzes… I tried to tape them back together, but they’re clearly missing pieces. And [Student A], I don’t know what you put on your quiz, but he went after yours twice!”
Instead of forgiveness, I was inundated with deep, soul-cleansing laughter.
