Aww, I've been telling this to my classes for several years now. I just never made a sign! :)
I have a dream. This dream is that I am assigned to teach the university-mandated speech class. I dream of giving a speech assignment during the performance of which by Snowflakes #1-30 enrolled in the class, I proceed to look at my phone, text some friends, whisper to my neighbor, haul out my laptop, mess around with my book bag, and loudly eat my breakfast. I hope that they notice my disrespect, but perhaps not. So my dream continues. I dream that when Snowflakes #1-30 inquire as to their grade for said speech activity that I reply to them that I have no memory of their speech, would they mind repeating it, and I couldn't possibly give them a grade because I neglected to bring the proper tools (pen, pencil, paper, grading rubric) that I need to grade their assignment, and would they mind giving me another chance at the same time during the next class, or maybe...even next week?I'd like to think the Snowflakes would notice people being rude when they were attempting to share knowledge with the class, but I really do wonder.
