when the other two classes i am teaching this year came in without their homework, i heard every excuse in the book. then i got the question, "well, if we do our homework at lunch, can't we just skip owing you recess and go outside to play?" my answer: no way. what did they do? they went to their homeroom teacher, said that they didn't do their homework and asked her if they could do it at lunch then go to recess. her answer: yes. ughhh! then i got to play the bad guy and make them stay in for recess after she vetoed me. i think they need to learn responsibility, and that they cannot get off scott-free when they don't do their homework. in my opinion that is unacceptable, and it is only teaching them bad habits. i did the right thing, right? back me up here!! :o)
