What's your problem?

Our college prep course students had a great writing activity the other
day. Students answered the question "What is your problem?" anonymously
on half a piece of paper, then the papers were shuffled and given out to
the students again. The receiving students wrote advice to the anonymous
students and signed their name. All this was done completely in English.

The English teacher showed the papers to the homeroom teacher - a
science teacher. She read all the students problems (in English) and
just by their problems she could easily guess who they were.

The biggest problem in college prep course (where they usually have
school until 5:30 or 6) is that students fell they have no free time.
Imagine that (translation = "well, that was a no-brainer").
