Today during our rules discussion in math class, I had the students generate ways to facilitate and disrupt our atmosphere of learning (being on time, prepared, and respectful).
Me: What’s one way to disrupt learning?
Student: Turning up the night before.
Me thinking: What, at school the night before? That’s kinda weird.
Student seeing my quizzical expression: Partying the night before.
Me: Well then. I just learned something new. Never stop learning!
