The scribbled sticky notes all over my desk tell me I'm behind on blogging! Instead of a tip and a resource, today my followers get treat: lots of zingers, funny one-liners spoken or written by my students. These have not been edited! Enjoy.
Today's Zinger #1: I was talking with a student about an argumentative essay we were analyzing. Here's how the conversation went:
Teacher: That issue has another side.
Student: Yeah, it's a double-edged sword.
Teacher: Is there any part of the argument that you can grab onto?
Student: How can you grab onto a double-edged sword?
Zinger #2: "Mrs. Kratzer, what is the abbreviation for May?"
Zinger #3: (During a lesson on The Civil Rights Movement)
"Selma--wasn't that a movie where they drove off a cliff?"
Zinger #4: "Glitter is the herpes of art. Once you got it, you can't get rid of it."
Zinger #5: "Ima a jack you for your church shoes."
Zinger #6: "I read it somewhere, I don't know--maybe on that link to that online newspaper, the Huff and Puff."
Zinger #7: "I am mug-shot serious."
