A Kat Production
You teach seventh grade history at a junior high school. The most common punishments for your twelve and thirteen-year-old students are lines and licks. The kids consider lines to be the more lenient punishment. Today Wendell, age thirteen, is being unusually loud and disruptive. Wendell is a quiet, studious boy who avoids getting in trouble most of the time, so you assign him lines. You are surprised when he asks if he can take licks instead. He offers an explanation: he has a book report due for another class tomorrow so he won’t have time for writing lines. A chorus of teasing from his classmates lets you know that he has never had licks before.
Will you bust his butt or perhaps give him an extra day on the lines? If you do give him licks, what will the tariff be? You can give up to three.
