In my 5:30 class we are reading a story about how the Chinese believe that you can tell someone’s personality and future by the shape of their face. We were having a discussion about how reliable and valid this is. One of the girls, Gina, pipes up and says, "Well, teacher… there are some parts of it that are reliable. Like, I wear glasses. And people can see my glasses and know that I’m really smart because I read a lot of books."
Before I could even say anything, Chris turns to Gina and quips, "Maybe you just watch a lot of TV."
Sweet! Funny on so many levels. And here I thought I wasn’t teaching them anything…
