Facepalm Moment

128 posts in this topic

Today in my first period, I was teaching weather expressions in Spanish. One of the activities from the book was asking what the weather was like in certain places in a certain month. For example:

En Louisiana en noviembre

One of my students didn't know where Lousiana was. One of the students next her said "Do you know where New Orleans is" and she responded "Whats that?"

I seriously facepalmed right there. Our country is doomed if this is our future.

10th grader. I can understand not knowing exactly where its at, but you should at least know its in the south east.

And like it or not (despite mother nature's attempts) New Orleans is still a major city. I can't believe she didn't know what it was.

That would have probably caused more confusion.
