Do you notice any patterns in our classroom?


I"m so disappointed in my high school German students. Sure they totally all passed the last quiz I gave them. They also worked really hard on their oral projects. But for the last three weeks I have been playing a joke on them and NONE of them have caught on. sigh.

For my March seating chart I arranged the students in order from blondest to darkest color of hair. The desks in my classroom are in a horseshoe so it is TOTALLY obvious. The dark haired sit on my right hand and the blonds on my left. All the dirty blonds, light brown and red heads (tricky) are in between according to shade.

No, I do not favor one group over the other and Yes my blond students are just as bright as my brunet students. Every day I keep waiting for someone to look around and point it out. So far no such luck.

I'm totally telling them on April Fools Day. Joke is on you kids! Mwahahahah

First off.... sometimes I wonder what you think about.... where did you get such an idea???? Can that be called discrimination? Because I LOVE it and wanna try it!!! It will be difficult with 36 student compared to 15 but hey that's why they pay me the big bucks right?

That is hilarious but scary at the same time. In a German class, arranged by hair color . . . something having to do with the "Aryan race" freaks me out. Did you tell them?
