The board in my classroom said:
1. Come in and sit down.
2. Open your book and read.
A student raised his hand and asked,
“Mr. Karabekian, what do we do?”
After some ribbing from students, I said:
“Seriously, it’s like you’re coming up to a stop sign and asking it what to do.”
The student, completely seriously replies:
“Well, you slow down a little, right?”
