I admit, I love it when it falls on a weekday and we have school that day. Mainly because I will do a "pop quiz." Only I don't exactly call it that. Mainly because I don't agree with many of the philosophies behind pop quizzes and my students know that.
So, since yesterday was the first day back after spring break, I told them that I might be inclined to do a reading check today. You know, to get them back into the swing of things. (I need them reading anyhow, so two birds with one stone and all that.)
Except that the quiz will be a little different. The questions may only slightly have to do with this chapter, and be far more nit-picky and ridiculous in nature (i.e. What color ink was used to print the formulas?). I will give it to them face down & tell them it is timed - 5 minutes only. They will sweat. They will fidget. Some might complain, and I will tell them to do the best they can.
Only once time is up & they have switched papers will I flick on the projector.
I only hope I can keep a straight face until then. :)
