Hey at least these guys were trying and were well behaved.

We are the most optimistic crowd aren’t we

I think it’s sad and true

[–]Claudi_Day 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Oh my god. The first one was too real I'm dying.

Edit: the second one too. I just started my partner with how loud I started laughing. Nay- chortling. These are amazing I love you for them <3

Hahaha omg I have definitely had that first video happen multiple times this year! It had me laughing so hard I'm in tears

[–]Professional_Sub 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That first one has me fucking crying

[–]claypigeon-allegMath, Adulting 56 points57 points  (4 children)

For years, I've wanted to show this video to my class.

(I can't, of course, but I want to)

[–]brackenfur 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Holy shit thank you for this

[–]mvinformant 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Does anyone have a clean version of this?

[–]pinballwitch420Reading Specialist | Virginia 3 points4 points  (0 children)

All I want is for them to pretend to give a shit! Just pretend for like an hour, please!

[–]lilly_kill_kenny 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm fucking losing my shit here!

[–]mourning_euphoria 42 points43 points  (0 children)

The students are paying entirely too much attention.

[–]llammacheese 47 points48 points  (12 children)

The episode with Seinfeld trying to teach WWII is the best example of teaching I have ever seen. If I wasn’t on mobile, I’d see if I could scour the web for the clip.

Ugh when videos play the ad perfectly but then won’t play the actual video.

[–]llammacheese 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Thanks! Years ago it was impossible to find online. SNL was very protective of their videos. I had it downloaded on my computer at work to show some other history teachers and haven’t looked for it since. I guess SNL is more lax with their streaming now. 🙂

You might be able to screen cap it with SM recorder.

[–]llammacheese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have it saved; I was commenting more on how difficult it used to be to find online.

I can see the same reactions in my classroom. And if watching a 1992 video reminds you of your classroom in 2017, then maybe kids have not change as much as people claim.

Funny, I was remarking on how they’re all raising their hands, being polite to the teacher, and have no smart phones out.

[–]rementbento 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Reminded me that I'm out of antacids...

[–]McWaddle9th grade ELA 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I couldn't handle the audio being so out of sync.

[–]empathogen 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Here's a better version, though SNL edited out the F-bomb.

This Vine is me on more days than I care to admit.

[–]skittles_rainbows 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You kinda want to pound your head against the wall when they start trying to sound out "the"

[–]ValhallaAtYaBoy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That was me when teaching 6th graders who couldn't read at all.

[–]ThrowsLikeaHuman 6 points7 points  (0 children)

No one gives teachers any credit for all the many days they'd like to drop the F-bomb in class, but didn't. That should be our yearly bonus.

The worst I've ever said is "Shoot!" but to the kids like it was that other Sh word.

This skit was OK until he grabbed them and punched that kid. That wasn't funny to me.

That’s what it is like to teach math to inner city schools.

Recently moved to a county district and haven’t seen a single fight though.

[–]BrerChickenHigh School Science 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Mr Wizard!

[–]BenKatz88 3 points4 points  (1 child)

How did the f-Bomb go over?

[–]NerdyKirdahy5th Grade Teacher 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He got a verbal warning from his principal, but no paperwork and no parent emails, fortunately.

As a science teacher who does density, this was bordering on triggering.

[–]fruitjerky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Too real. Gotta go drink now.

[–]PhilemonVHS Math Teacher 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had just finished teaching the concept of "Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent" (CPCTC) and had explained that you could only use it AFTER you had proven two triangles congruent. So, of course, when running through a proof, I get to a triangle congruence statement (triangle ABC is congruent to triangle DEF) and ask what is the justification for the statement. My students shout out CPCTC (and other properties and definitions), but none of the five that we had learned. I even had a student shout out Angle-Side-Side, even though I have repeatedly told them that that's not a valid theorem and had explained that the initials are a giveaway to why not.

Oh my gosh this is hysterical

[–]guysmiley00 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This seems like a great example of a bad teacher.
