Class Clown

Getting ready to pass out this semester’s History final, two of my most talkative females students are continuing in their conversation.

Me: Ladies, would you like to forfeit this exam and take a zero?

[Both girls stop talking and shake their heads in the negative.]

Male Student: [Innocent expression on his face] Wait, we can do that?

I tried to keep a straight face, but I lost it.  I have some very funny students.

  1. Ah, the memories of some of the smarter classes when I was subbing. In one class of 5th graders, I dramatically told them to pretend for just a few moments they were adults as I explained how I managed things. When I told them they could resume their childhood, several of them went, “Whew! That was hard work!”

  2. Cute. I have a great class. Two students in particular are very animated and comedic. There are times I wish I could stop being the responsible adult and enjoy their humor and cut up with them.

    Alas, I get paid to instruct.

  3. My students are adults, which means I’m the one who gets to have the fun. One of my favorite things is to ask a question such as, “What is the greatest commandment? I’ll give you a hint: It rhymes with ‘love.'” It never fails. They try to come up with all sorts of words that rhyme with love, without ever getting the obvious answer.
