Inside a Grade 12 Science classroom on a Friday afternoon...
Good afternoon class! Please take out your homework from last night.
The teacher quitely approaches Misty, as Misty rolls her eyes.
Misty, do you have your homework completed?
Misty, please see me after class
The teacher meets with Misty after class for a teacher-student conference in order to discuss the students' options.
Misty, you are a very bright individual. However, your mark is dangerously low. I need you to begin participating and completing your homework. This will help improve your mark as I know you want to become a veterinarian.
I need to buckle down..
The following Monday...
Who knows how many bones are in the body?
Following the conference the students appears more prepared and dedicated. The teacher recognizes this and praises the student.
Amazing job today! You completed your homework and participated, your mark will reflect you effort!
