Yeah, I had a kid in class explain he cannot follow me.
I asked "What was the last chapter you read in the book"?
"I'm Behind" he said.
Yeah, but what was the last chapter you read?
"2"
so, you feel comfortable if I ask you the core questions of what you learned in chapter 2?
"No"
Okay, we are on CHAPTER 6... How do you expect to even BEGIN to process what I am talking about?

The kind that spent hours in the lab, pestering other kids, until they eventually gave him the answers he needed.
Nice guy.
Changed his major, went into physical therapy (I saw him at a Hockey Game, he approached me. Told me "Your class" made me realize I just wasn't into it... He said Physical Therapy, and I told him "I bet you're really good at it, and at connecting with people to meet them where they are, and to get them moving..." He GLOWED when he said "Exactly!"...

I said "that was the natural ability you were using in the labs, to get the homework from others! You just found a more appropriate use for those skills"... He laughed pretty hard (I don't think he knew I knew)... And thanked me again as we went separate ways.
It was nice. My daughter was there. (She was not used to someone addressing me as their Teacher/Professor, since it was a part-time gig).
