I know school is out, so this is most likely a good time to make this thought public. There will be no one reading it and wondering if it is them.
I see this all the time, a student will approach the desk to put his/her quiz, test whatever the case, in my in basket, then will slip it underneath the top one and look at me with a sheepish look. What am I supposed to do? Why do they slip it underneath? Do they really think I won’t ever look at it, they put their name on it so I know when I see it who it belongs to. Do they not want me to see it right away? Guess what the first thing I do when I see them look sheepish about slipping it underneath…yup look at it.
Why do a lot of students do this? I really have no idea. Any ideas?
