Your Plan Is Broken

| Learning | May 26, 2017

(Due to an unexpected number of absences, I decided to push today’s lesson back to the next day so a couple of the students are kicking a ball around the front of the room.)

Me: “Don’t break anything.”

Student #1: “We’ll try.”

Me: “That’s the wrong answer.”

(A few minutes later they start discussing what would happen if they hit me with the ball.)

Student #1: “Well, she didn’t say not to hit her. She just said don’t break anything.”

Me: “Yeah, and if you hit me, you’ll get broken.”

Student #2: “So… not a good idea.”
