It Was A Rough Draft

| Learning | November 21, 2013

(In order to help the students improve their public speaking skills in English class, I am having them give 30-second impromptu speeches. One particular student seems very enthusiastic to go.)

Student #1: “Oh! Oh! Oh! Can I go first?”

Me: “Sure, go ahead and go up to the podium.”

(The student runs up there and begins giving his speech. As he is talking, he suddenly starts slowly taking off his pants. The whole class starts shifting uncomfortably and giggling. Before I can stop him, the pants are off and he is standing up there in gym shorts. He ends his speech and sits back down as if everything that just happened was normal.)

Me: “Um… any other volunteers?”
