I just cannot tell you how often a student who has missed a class will meet me in the corridor and say, "Did I miss anything on Friday?" or "Did you do anything last class?"
Of course I immediately want to say, "No, we just went to the pub."
Rosemary Riveter (http://painfullyfluffy.blogspot.com/) gave me this link in her comment on my previous post. If you didn't click on it then, I would recommend you do so now. Especially if you're a teacher. But even if you aren't.
I would die happy if I'd written this poem. It's called "Did I miss anything?"
