I really hate when teachers do that. like, I have one that slams the door shut and locks it if your 10 seconds late (no exaggeration). sometimes they dont understand what you have to go through to get to class. I have to walk from one end of the school to the other and back, and you don't move very fast because it's so cramped.
Sounds like you would be one of the kids always late for class. Seems very obvious when you look at how you word things. OH FYI. It is life, in this particular instance. Not, live. Maybe you needed all those extra minutes before you arrived late you realize, sometimes you need to look back at the things you type out and EDIT it?
2, it depends on the class. in my experience with some of my remedial ed. classes, you let one student off "just once," the rest expect the same all the time. for the classes where lack of self-discipline is a huge problem, it's important to set an example. not sure if this was the case with op's class, however. and 8, you're basing your assumptions about 2 on what, exactly?
I wouldn't pay attention to kritz, she always leaves condescending, stuck up messages. Maybe someone should refer her to Docbastard, he is an expert in removing things from people's bottoms, after all. #35, while it's true that you need to set an example, the solution contradicts the wanted result. 1. Problematic students would WANT to be excused from the class, therefore might do it on purpose. If a student considers being kicked out a "punishment", he probably wouldn't be a problematic kid to begin with. 2. You're denying them their education. Is this really the best punishment? I believe a more creative punishment is in order, while keeping them in class. OP, YDI.
Kritz, you really shouldn't criticize anyone else's writing until you have a better grasp on it yourself. While his writing may not have been perfect, it was at least readable on first glance. I had to read yours multiple times to understand your meaning because you can't seem to figure out where a comma goes.
I am the original poster. It was an adult ESOL class. School policy - strictly adhered to - is that students can't be admitted if they are more than 5 minutes late and all students know this. Lateness is disruptive and disrespectful to other students. We all eventually had the cake later anyway!
