Shaming doesn’t have to be all negative. This teacher decided to celebrate students’ mistakes by posting their pictures on the school’s Wall of Shame. Its intent was actually to help students lose the shame and embrace their errors with the goal of not doing the same thing again.
It’s all in the spirit of good fun. Clearly, the students in this school loved the idea they willfully put themselves out there. Also, it helped erase the fear of failure and opened avenues to taking positive risks. Hey, at least they’re not being paraded around the streets while a nun rings the bell. Shame!
Joke's on You
This joke is funny on all levels only if this is not meant for you. It is evidently difficult to laugh if you are the brunt of this humorous drawing. But apparently, this is what happened to this student who wanted to lighten the mood after a difficult test by placing a drawing of a man seemingly and struggling to reach the exit door.
Alas, the keeper of the gate would have none of it and blocked his exit simply because he was not to pass. Whether you take that literally or figuratively – a sad face, and not a smiley one, is definitely in order. Add the blood-red ink, and feel free to facepalm yourself while shaking your head. We love a good ol' "LOTR" reference.
Depressing Test, Depressing Grade
This student is self-aware enough to know that his test performance was not at par with standards – a fact that depressed him, and so he felt he had to give the teacher his thoughts. The teacher, having checked the test, confirmed the student’s fears.
Don’t be surprised to get this comment when you didn’t bother studying. There’s a good chance that teachers put the tests of the smart students on the bottom. That way, they can enjoy some happiness after marking 50 tests. Procrastination can be so deadly at times. We love how self aware the student was about how bad they did.
Best Excuse Ever
No longer is homework being eaten by students’ pet dogs. They have now upped or maybe lowered the ante by simply telling teachers their homework is missing. Poof. Nada. No more. There is no other explanation given, nor was there effort to even make up an unimaginable excuse.
As a consequence of not exerting any effort to submit homework or at least giving a lousy excuse for not having one, this teacher decided to punish this student with a Bermuda Triangle award. But then, calculus is indeed a subject that would make anyone lose their mind so this student losing his homework makes sense.
Worst Torture Ever
Nickelback is a Canadian band popular for its same-sounding songs, a few of which were discovered to be recycled tunes from their previous work. They are also known for their ear-bleeding mediocre music. So when a teacher threatened the class with Nickelback, the students knew the teacher was dead serious.
Clearly, no one wants to go through the terrifying experience of having to sit through monstrous music. But then, being late the 8th time, you probably deserve some Nickelback in your ears just to remind you it’s time to get your act together. "This is how you remind me" has never sounded so true.
