SCENE: My students, packing up their stuff. (Well. Half my students, packing up their stuff. God knows where everyone else had got to.)

Me: Oh, and when I say we're doing [X novel] next week, I mean we're doing all of it. So you do need to read the whole book, up to and including the end.

(But they know that, right?)

Students, in unison: What, really?/All of it?/*sigh*

  2. What is it that you're inflicting on them that they weren't expecting to have to read the end? One assumes not an Agatha Christie novel...

  3. A medium-length novel. On an English course! Oh the horror!
