Learning On The Fly

| Learning | December 23, 2013

(Our teacher has made the class do a ‘mock trial’ to better understand the justice system. Every student is assigned a role of judge, jurors, defendant, lawyer, etc. Most of the class is unsure of what to do, since we’ve never done this before. We ask the teacher to guide us.)

Student #1: “Teacher, what do we do next?”

Teacher: “Oh, don’t mind me. I’m just a fly on the wall!”

Student #1: “But—”

Teacher: “I’m not going to help. You all should know what to do next. So don’t bother me. I’m just a fly on the wall, observing!”

(The class looks at one another.)

Student #2: “Anyone have a fly-swatter?”
