Left You Out Of Pocket

| Learning | July 6, 2017

(We have been given the task to make something out of construction paper and tape that will span 12″ and hold weight. I have thought of a design that will do just that, with a pocket to hold the weights, and my group decides to build it. Within the first few minutes the teacher comes up.)

Teacher: “How’s it going?”

Me: “Good! We’re doing—” *explains design*

Teacher: “That’s great!”

(Later, our designs are being ‘judged.’ Ours comes up, and she sits there with the weights, moving them constantly over our piece but not setting them down.)

Me: “Just put it in the pocket!”

Teacher: “But that wasn’t the project!”

(And, naturally, my teammates blamed me.)
