Facepalm Moment

Recommended Posts

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.

how old?

i still don't have a great knowledge of geography.

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.

I guess Louisiana...the Louisiana purchase... didn't get the synapses firing either..

That would have probably caused more confusion.

Wow what an idiot. Has she never heard of Mardi Gras? That would probably be the only thing she would recognize maybe....but yeah she was around when Katrina hit...

Props to you for teaching Espanol, I love the language.

Ha, thanks. The favorite thing I get in class is "Do I have to answer this in Spanish?" or "You know we don't speak Spanish right?

Really? 10th grade and if you don't know the states and roughly where they are at in the US. Then it's a good thing 12/21/12 is alomst here, because we are doomed for that next generation to take over.
