Time-Saving Teacher Tip-No More English
Three things are certain in the life of a science teacher: death, taxes, and students using the English side of the ruler after being told to use the metric. One way you could just about eliminate this (never say never) is to cover the inches side with a strip of black vinyl tape, also called electrician’s tape. A roll costs about a dollar. The fact that it’s vinyl means it will even resist water and grime from labs and hands. Now, keeping students from removing the tape, that’s another problem.
