how much should a teacher do?
Today my students are bringing three copies of their first drafts to class for a first round of peer feedback and feedback from me. I just received an email from one student who wrote that his/her printer was out of paper and could I print the draft for him/her?
So individually this isn’t a big deal. But what the heck – I’m not supposed to be a secretary for students, or their mother or something. Imagine when they all expect me to print out their papers for them?
Fortunately I remembered before replying that students can print stuff out here at the University. So I told him/her that he/she could do that.
Was I mean? What would you do?
