Second Grade Classroom Scenario

Aaron, the most vocal of the two boys, starts yelling, “Tony took the red marker!” Tony denies it. Soon the boys are shouting at each other. The rest of the class stands around watching and no one has started working in their center.

Tenth Grade Classroom Scenario
The bell has rung and Mr. Dunn’s tenth grade math class has settled into their seats. “Good morning! Let’s begin by having everyone pass their homework to the front of the class.” Tom walks into class 5 minutes late. Mr. Dunn asks, “Tom, do you have your homework?” Tom looks down at the floor when he answers, “No, I didn’t finish it.” Mr. Dunn asks, “Why not? You knew it was due today, right?” Tom just shrugs. Mr. Dunn asks the rest of the class, “Who else did not turn in their homework today?” Pamela did not do her homework, but is afraid to raise her hand. Mr. Dunn says, “Good job, class! I appreciate everyone who worked hard to get their work turned in on time.” Daniel chimes in, “Which is everyone except Tom!” The class laughs. Tom angrily gets out of his chair and storms out of the room as he says, “I’m sick of this stupid class.”
