Working Just Isn’t Working

| Learning | May 26, 2014

(With this class being at the end of a nine-period day, it’s incredibly hard for the students to stay on task. Today is the first day they are all working the entire period on a group project.)

Student: “OH, MY GOD!”

Teacher: “What’s up?”

Student: “I just looked at the clock and there’s only five minutes left in class! Is THAT what happens when you’re actually working?”

Teacher: “Yes, isn’t it amazing? Time moves so fast when you stay on task!”

Student: “… I don’t think I like it. I’m never working again.”
