A Teachable Momentposted by Mr. Vidiot @ 10:12 AM Permalink Teacher (to his high school class): What are your thoughts on the Virginia Tech shootings? How should we as a concerned public understand this tragic event?
Student 1: The problem is safety.
Teacher: OK. (Writes that on the board.) Anyone else?
Student 2: More police!
Teacher: (Writes that on the board) OK. Next?
Student 3: More security!
Teacher: (writes that on the board) OK. Anyone else?
Student 4: More Cameras!
After writing “More Cameras" on the board, the teacher puts a big equal sign next to everything and says, "Add that up and you get"
