Yikes! Very overdue but I’m going to post this regardless because I’ve been meaning to put it up.
So when we last left off, I was busy making the horses thirsty.
One of the ways in which I did so was to allow them to devise their own exam questions – in a structured manner, of course.
Without going into detail, I crafted the lesson with the objectives of making the students:
- Revise the question requirements for the O-Level exams; and
- Think about the issues in the particular passage, and thereafter the text.
While carrying out the lesson activity, this happened:
Student A: (reading out what he had written) “How does Tay create an atmosphere of me-lan-cho-lee –”
Student B: (from the other end of the classroom) “Eh, what melancholee – you think what, this one Indian food ah?”
Student C: “Ya lah, later you go to Lew Lian there the Indian stall you tell them, ‘Uncle, I want two kosong and the curry you gimme melancholee one’ and then you see what happen after that.”
Temporarily could not take it because was laughing so hard, so had to tell the students to give me a moment to finish laughing before we carried on with the lesson.
