This was last Sunday morning, during my time as warden on duty at the hostel. On a whim, I told them I wanted to do additional class and the poor souls who thought it was not compulsory can kiss 15 marks off their Science paper. (I am famous that way, slashing marks left and right).
The students sitting on the floor arrived a bit late. I don't tolerate tardiness well.
And here we are in class during an examination. I should walk around, doing the invigilating thingy, but I don't feel like it because my feet hurt. Furthermore I BELIEVE that if you get away with cheating.... you deserve it.
(Yes, I have this twisted notion that cheating students show EFFORT! If he or she was caught doing it, well... too bad and we'll give you zeroes. So please don't get caught kids!).
Another class... during Geography paper I think. Several students were restless way before the end because they finished early. so some decided to sleep...
And I promptly slapped one of the sleeping beauties, and they all stayed awake until the end of the scheduled time. (If you think just telling them off will just do the trick, you must not know children that well. Or do you prefer me asking them why they lack energy, as I cuddled them in my arms?)
Ahhh... this was taken seconds before that slap. Don't worry as I do carefully time my angle and force so not to cause permanent damage to so called victim(s). I am not proud being physical, but believe me, that's why we need hammers to push in nails.
Do you let students sleep during your examinations?
- gimme an idea for a new post people!
