Even Art Linkletter would be hard pressed to top that

My students’ first draft of their research papers were due yesterday. About a month ago I gave them a two-sided checklist of all the pieces, parts, expectations for this paper. We went over the checklist in class, reviewing questions the students had as they embarked on this project. One of the expectations was the length of this paper, 5 to 6 pages.

Yesterday, one student handed in a 4 page paper and was surprised that it needed to be longer. When I reminded him of the checklist we went over in class three or four weeks earlier, he replied,

“I lost that sheet so badly, that I didn’t even know that I had it originally.”

I made him repeat what he had said very slowly so I was sure to get it down word for word.

Even Art Linkletter would be hard pressed to find a kid to top that.
