EVERY DAY at least one student in each class asks me,
“Mister Karabekian, at what time does this class end?”
The problem is, we do not have block OR rotating schedules, so their classes always end at the same time each day. Am I seriously dealing with students who cannot remember simple things from one day to the next?
Based on these other related questions I often receive, yes, indeed I am:
“Mister Karabekian, how much minutes is left?”
“Mister Karabekian, how many times left?”
“Mister Karabekian, how long ’til class end?”
“Mister Karabekian, when the bell?”
…and so on.
(These are all students who use English as their primary, and often only language.)
