Three classes later…

August 27, 2009

…and I’m loving teaching.


I had some great discussion over Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times in my afternoon class today.  Maybe it’s a cliché, but it’s amazing to watch things click with your students when you’re a teacher.  Right now, I’m loving the way these 18-20 year-olds are relating Chaplin’s depression-era film to our current economic situation.

If you haven’t seen it, you should watch it.  Seriously.  I know you think Chaplin is boring cause he’s silent, but the man was a genius.  My kids and I are laughing out loud through the entire 83 minutes.  So do it.

By the way, my current cute thing my students do?  After every class, I’ve had a boy (always a boy) hanging around to talk to me, and when I ask him what he needs, he looks like I startled him.  Like I surprised him.  Like he wasn’t waiting around to talk to me.  It goes like this:

Me: Yes, Tyler?  

Him: (startled) Oh! Um…yeah…I was wondering what the assignment is/when our first test is/what we’re watching next week?

What’s that about?
