Email students send

Received at 8 pm:

"Can you email me a list of all the required readings for the quiz tomorrow?"

You mean, the readings I've told you about in class for weeks, put on the calendar, the syllabus, and linked on the website?  Those readings?

Actually, no.  I don't think I can. I think I did not see your email.




  1. Last week I received an email: "Do we have to do the required readings?"

    1. I got "what does chapters 3-6 mean? I hope that doesn't mean we have to read four chapters." It did -- over the course of 2 weeks.

    2. I got a little snarky in my response: "I suppose that all depends upon your goals for the course."

  2. your procrastination will not be my emergency

  3. Those emails are even better when they come at 11pm for the 9am class. Even I don't get to my email in time for that.

  4. I got a variation on that recently: "Where can I find answers to some of the questions on the study guide?"

    FSM as my witness, I wrote back and asked which ones the snowflake was having trouble with, but didn't get an answer before the test....
