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.

    • There are literally MILLIONS of Muslims living in this country.  You know them.  They are your neighbor, your co-workers, your fellow students. The vast majority of them live peacefully.  And I would point out that Christian America are bombing them and killing them too. I'm not saying we are the problem, but we kill them for killing us so they kill us for killing them and it is just a never-ending cycle of retaliations. When we celebrate killing 30 ISIS people  here but to them they are just family and friends.  To us they are evil doers on the other side of the world.  To them it just a fraternity of brotherhood. I don't know what the answer is.  It is FUBAR.  But don't villainize a religion over the actions of a few.  The "average" Muslim isn't the people carrying out these attacks anymore than the average white is a white supremacist attacking minorities. Compassion and empathy isn't weakness it is strength.
