This little video, taken from Neatorama, is an example of a classroom interruption that sparkles with class and zazz.
This is much different than my college classroom interruptions, many of which Randy The Funkee Homosapien was witness too. Notably, I am reminded of my behavior during a little activity that we took part in during our History Methods class.
The instructor set us up so that we were competing countries on the brink of war, gave us some information, and then set us up in different rounds of negotiation. I quickly established an alliance with a neighboring country, and then threatened genocide on the remaining countries, barred diplomatic access (and contemplated taking one of them hostage), and gave a presidential address to the assembled class in which I threatened to "drive our enemies before us while listening to the lamentations of your women". The excercise was supposed to mimic the beginnings of WWI, and I think that the hope was that we would be able to make peace. I on the other hand would have launched a preemptive thermonuclear strike if I could have.
Luckily, I think Randy was a part of my oligarchy and thus was spared the life of a plebian.
Epic Fail, Educational System.
