Gave my uni freshmen the indirect message that it's time to grow up... I gave them homework. I had figured that three sessions of not having homework at all were too many. At the announcement of homework, you would've thought I had given them all wedgies. Is it so unusual for college profs in China to give their freshmen students homework? At my US uni, we totally had homework the first day of class. But then, I've been noticing quite a few differences in standards between the two countries when it comes to education.
