  1. Lighten up (You probably need to do it in your class too)

  2. 'people like you' hhmm. I guess they need to be taught by judgmental people like you

  3. I use something similar in the standard exam. I show them all the forms and explain that if they cheat or talk I'll have to fill in a lot of forms and I'll force them to sit there with me while I do it too.

  4. Oh I use this use every single day. "Well that's what I'd like to know too, can a grade 9 (10/11/12/13) student go to the bathroom?"

  9. Happened one minute ago
    Student comes online and sees that I am on, says hello, I reply with hello, carries on "How is your Saturday morning?"

  10. I do say "duh" all the time too
  11. On the contrary, Most of these things are not said. we write them here. Seems we're doing a pretty decent job of keeping our shape
