Hello, my name is Mr. Jefferson and I am your' teacher this year. I want you to know that in my class I'm more concerned with what you learn, not what you've put on a piece of paper. Often times students come to me and say, "Mr I did my work why am I failing". The reason this takes place is because students often associate learning with doing assignments. These two ideas are not always connected. Many students would rather copy their friends assignment rather than doing the work themselves. When that happens the student completed the assignment, yet learned nothing!
