I was at the continuation high school today. Fridays are pretty laid back. We get out at noon.
Today the lesson plan was a movie. They were to write a paragraph about the movie and turn it in at the end of the period. Otherwise it was pretty kick back. Of course, that's where the trouble begins.
I had several students think that since it was sub + movie + Friday that they could relax the rules. They thought that they could bring out their cell phones. A warning is usually enough.
However, there was this one student who didn't like my answer. When I told him to put away his phone, he argued. I wasn't in the mood. I told him to stop arguing and I glared at him.
"That look--you look just like my moms."
Wow! What a wonderful compliment.
