Don’t Test The Teacher’s Methods

| Learning | December 31, 2013

(We’re taking a math test. No one in the class seems happy. After many students have made the despondent walk of shame to her desk, the teacher decides to speak up.)

Teacher: “Guys, I’m going to ask you a question. I want you to be really honest. How many of you are going to fail this test?”

(Over three-quarters of the class raise their hands.)

Teacher: “Okay. Come back and get it. This’ll be a take-home test.”

Student: “Can we sing celebratory songs?”

Teacher: “Go ahead.”
