Yesterday a couple of students came late to class and were carrying a late pass. Usually late passes are hastily scribbled on a scrap of paper, but this was actually printed out with a title and spaces to fill out and stuff. My passes are currently blank purple papers, which are leftovers from when I cut flaps to hide the answers on the riddle papers I hung on the wall in my classroom.
These pre-printed passes are nice, but if I did it, I think would have to add the word “Amazing!” or “Awesome!” after my name. In fact, I think it would need several exclamation marks sprinkled throughout the text. That would make my passes seem more exciting or urgent.
