Flabbergasted

There is no other word I can think of for this post but that. I am flabbergasted. Earlier today I gave my students an exam and I got asked the most jaw-dropping question…

In the essay part of the exam, I got asked not once, not twice, but a total of four times if they could answer it in bullet points. Um….how does one answer that??? Diplomatically, I mean? :) I guess my students are just used to me being so flexible but I felt quite disappointed with such questions, mainly because I thought the instruction was clear enough. Oh well.

Oh, I did regain my composure and answered them with a “Welll, if you think bullet points equals an essay, go ahead”.

Sigh…the non-joys of teaching.
