Overheard: comparing in-class activity (lecture-tutorial) worksheet answers (1)

Astronomy 210, fall semester 2012
Cuesta College, San Luis Obispo, CA

(Overheard as student groups are completing their in-class activity (lecture-tutorial) worksheets.)

Student 1: (Raising hand.)  "Do you want to check our answers, and see if they're correct?"

Instructor: "No, I don't want to check your answers.  I want you to compare your answers with another group."

Student 2: (Looking down the row of seats to the next nearest group.)  "They're too far away.  Why don't you check our answers?"

Instructor: <sarcasm> "If they're too far away, why don't you just take a smartphone picture of your worksheet, and post it on Facebook, saying, 'Like this if you think this is correct?'" </sarcasm>

Student 1: (Beat.) "Why don't you just check our answers?"
