Definition

"Socially Useful Productive Work." Also "Some Useful Periods Wasted."

Name comes from a requirement of 10th grade education to have chlidren "engage with the society" around them and not just their textbooks. Sadly has degenerated into futile exercise in teaching boys how to sew, or plant trees, or visit slums, none of which are done seriously and none of which produce the desired effect. Hence time wasted.

Usage

SUPW class period is Ryan's favorite period. He burns paper in a bottle and convinces the teachers at St. Joseph's that it is a form of art. Well at least he is better than Nas who goes home during the period to watch bluefilms.
