Great Moments in Teaching Part I

In Creative Writing class, I told my students to make a circle so we could play a memory game, and everyone got up and started shuffling between desks-- except for one girl, who was concentrating on her notebook; finally, she picked her head up and looked around at everyone standing . . . and with a sheepish grin she held up what she had been so diligently working on: she had drawn a circle.

When I read the first half of your sentence, I was wondering why you would have the kids draw a circle for creative writing, and it took me a minute to get the picture you posted--I think its better to be slow sometimes, just because it makes things funnier when you figure out how stupid you are.
