Friday, I had some of the most fun I’ve ever had with two of my classes. I worked with a 9th grade and a 10th grade class and we did the same lesson with both. It started off with me reading a story and asking them to understand. Then, they read the story and told me what happened. After that, we considered what might happen after the story. Both classes were pretty bored by the end of it.
But then the fun began. We turned the page and there were pictures for a story, but no text. I asked each class to come up with a story for the pictures. Here is what they came up with:
The amount of murder and glee on the students’ faces scares me a bit. Vika was thoughtfully thinking through the best way to dispose of the body and to make sure no one would discover who was the actual murderer. I will never give bad grades to these kids. Nor will I eat any food offered to me from them.
