On the Absurdity and Delightfulness of Classroom Detritus
I love finding what has been left from previous classes in my classroom. Out of context, it's so intriguing! It makes me think of this excellent Stanley Fish essay, "How to Recognize a Poem." It's also fun to overhear other teachers through adjoining walls, and try to glean what they're discussing from the audible snippets ("So.....mumble murmur mumble CHAIR.....mumble mumble FORMS mumble murmur" = a philosophy class).
Happy weekend, friends!
