Had four out of eight in ENG 101 today. Two haven't showed up since January but are still enrolled. Tomorrow is the last day to drop. Looks like grading will be a snap but I wish they'd either make an effort or pick up a drop slip.
I had an epiphany today that about half my normal class time is spent for people who can't understand basic instructions. The four who came today all knew what was going on so I cut class short but it's scary that even when I do spend literally twice the time I need to on instructions, it's still not enough for some students.
