An ex-trainee of mine visited Bahrain, I think it was, where she was invited to a school. The teacher arrived early, and wrote the lesson on a sequence of whiteboards of the kind where you have one behind the other, and they slide up and down like car windows. In due course students showed up, decked out with designer togs, Rolex watches, solid gold iPhones, jeans studded with every august and costly stone, and what-not. They copied down the lesson from the boards after they had borrowed pens from the teacher, as you can't be carrying pens to school with all those precious metal accessories to worry about. When they had finished copying they took the lesson home, presumably fulfilling their part of the bargain by devoting some effort to memorising it - unless of course they had found some way of having it memorised on their behalf, which wouldn't surprise me.
Anyway, the most difficult thing to convey to certain (not all) of my lot today was that I was not going to write their notes for them, and that the notes were for them, not for me, and they would have to select the most salient points from a text by themselves. I showed them my own notes as an example, pointed out all the abbreviations and symbols and omission of superfluous grammatical nuts and bolts, and tried to get them to see that so long as they understood their own notes, I x gv toss if used same abbr. &ct. as me.
