The nimiety of excuses that students offer to ask for extra credit near the end of a semester is truly remarkable. Regardless of the pretense, why ask for extra credit when the regular credit was not even attempted? Truly, extra credit is for the student who has completed all of the regular credit, and who wants to apply and synthesize what he’s learned in a challenging extracurricular way. This extension of curriculum aspect is why students never complete “extra” credit — because they can’t!
Teachers know that many strange things can happen to us while teaching. But I think these things can be far more embarrassing if you are a high school teacher, because they happen in front of a teens who understand the humor of the situation.
