Now is the time of the semester for desperate emails from students. Yes, I'm sorry they are having difficulties. Yes, I encourage them to seek the necessary attention from medical and/or psychological professionals. No, I will not grade all of their back homework. No, I do not give "extra credit" to students on demand.
This afternoon I am supposed to go to a meeting to discuss the academic "progress" (or lack thereof) of a student who failed my second-semester class last year and who is in danger of failing it again, due to absences and failure to submit work. He has not submitted a homework assignment since the week of March 9 (and even that one was late), and he has not been to class since March 23. He has missed a total of 21 classes so far (7 weeks' worth of class). I don't see where more talking (and more wasting of my time) will get us, but I'll try not to be too contemptuous.
Hopefully I will manage to open up some time for my own work today.
