Expanding The Borders Of Young Minds

| NB, Canada | Learning | September 6, 2013

(I’m an intern teacher and several years younger than many of the other teachers. I teach a mythology unit, I made a quick reference to Pandora’s box, and the game ‘Borderlands.’ A week later, a student approaches me.)

Student: “I like that you referenced Borderlands in class.”

Me: “I’m glad you liked it! The game had a lot of elements of the myth in it, didn’t it?”

Student: “But how did you know about it?”

Me: “I played through it when it first came out. Actually, I liked it so much that I just bought Borderlands 2.”

Student: *completely dumbfounded* “You… play games?”

Me: “…yes?”
