This is the time of the semester when many people just give up. I had a student recently who decided not to do the last two assignments. Then she realized that, by not doing them, she had flunked the class. She came back to me and asked if she could complete them because flunking the class meant she would not graduate and the job she had waiting would no longer be hers.
What advice do you have for her? What do you think I should do in this situation? What do you think I did? Give me your thoughts and I will tell you how the scenario played out.

Oooh…good question. I would have her stop and think of how hard it was to get to this point and time in the semester. I can imagine how hard and difficult it could be to get the job after months on end of hard work. Fortunately, the end of the semester is pretty close. I say, one more honest try on it. Hopefully, things will change for the better!

Thanks for your suggestion, Shervon. She is going to go for it and hopefully nail the assignment.
