The Teacher Becomes The Student

| Omaha, NE, USA | Learning | February 23, 2015

(I teach science to junior and senior high students in a home school co-op. Some of the kids have been to public school previously. We are learning about organelles of cells.)

Me: “[Student #1], where do you think that organelle would be on the diagram?”

Student #1: “Wait, I know this. I should remember it because I learned this in my science class in public school. Wait, sorry. I don’t remember. My science teacher was pretty awesome; I just think I was not a very good student.”

Me: “Does anyone here want to make that declaration for me?”

Student #2: “My science teacher was not a very good student!”
