Here are some moments that made it into the notebook from the school year before last. Enjoy!
Honors English II:
Student: "I'm going to marry Lady Gaga, and we're going to have beautiful babies."
Havig: "Isn't she a bit old for you?"
Student: "Maybe she's a cougar, and when I'm 18, she'll pounce."
For whatever reason, we were discussing Disney movies and the number of characters who have been orphaned or who have lost one parent.
Student: "They're not orphans if they have one parent. It would be like half. They're an orph."
We were working on Paragraph Writing Strategies which involves a lot of note taking. One of the example paragraphs was information about turtles.
Student: "If a turtle lost its shell, would it be naked or homeless?"
Student 1: "Have you seen the Blue Collar Comedy Tour?"
Havig: shakes head
Student 1: "Well, they have this thing where they use words to make sentences..."
Student 2 interrupting: "Dude, everyone uses words to make sentences."
