Student failing my class: "Can I pass if I turn everything in on time from now on? Do I have to get A's, or is it ok to get C's and still pass?"
Me: "Do you think you will actually turn in everything on time from now on?"
Me: "Ok, well have you started writing the paper that's due on Friday?"
Me: "Then I think it's probably not realistic to say that everything will be on time from now on"
Credit for optimism?
