This teacher is probably sick and tired of having to field questions from students who prefer not to read the syllabus. No longer interested to respond to something they should already know, this professor had a shirt specially made for times like this. After all, he probably has to give that answer many times throughout the day.
This shirt saves both the teacher and the student essential time and energy for asking and answering questions. All the professor needs to do is show the shirt, and voila! Nothing stops a student’s questions more than a shirt saying, “It’s in the syllabus.”
Honesty Is the Best Policy
The student could have asked the teacher for extra credit or bonus points just because of the teacher’s spilled beer. Though the teacher could give a reason that it was the paper’s fault that he started drinking anyway, spilling beer on a student’s paper is uncalled for.
Still, not many teachers would be honest enough to `fess up. Kudos to this teacher for admitting the fact that beer is the drink of choice during paper grading. Still, bonus points would be cool indeed. A point or two would be more than enough. After all, teachers need something to take the edge off.
Times New Roman Is Life
At least in this classroom, it is. Use any other font, and you are dead – at least to this teacher, you are. No other font will do. Times New Roman is the standard font to use unless you want to experience something else worst than failing – seeing your paper burnt into ash.
Kudos to this teacher for giving students a fair warning on the kind of font that they should use. Though paper-burning is a reaction that is a bit extreme, it may have been brought on by students preferring to use their own fonts and not the ones required.
This teacher is doing what most naughty students are caught doing. Probably annoyed that a student was sleeping in his class, this teacher hunkered down to tie this poor student’s shoelaces. There are many reasons why a student may be sleeping. He could be tired from having to do a part-time job or he may have family problems, or the class might be a tad boring.
The teacher could have exerted the effort to at least ask the student first instead of punishing him immediately by tying his shoelaces and then expecting him to fall on his face once he wakes up and stands. Tsk, tsk, bad teacher.
Gaga Over Gaga
This teacher is ingeniously teaching the elements while making the students easily recall them, thanks to a Lady Gaga song. Whether the teacher is a fan of the singer or the song was simply used for convenience’s sake, this is a lesson that deserves an award.
Imagine students singing the elements in their heads using a Lady Gaga song, thus making memorization easy-peasy. Plus, it is enough to give you a smile or two. This is what creative teaching is. Kudos to the chemistry teacher, indeed! We had no idea that Lady Gaga was writing songs to remind us of the periodic table.
