But … It Was an ‘Interactive Lesson’!

Posted on | May 1, 2012 | 9 Comments

Some people obviously don’t understand innovative advanced postmodern educational methodology:

A Bluffton (S.C) Middle School teacher is accused of grabbing a seventh-grader by his shirt collar, forcing him under a desk and telling him, “This is what the Nazis do to Jews,” according to the Bluffton Police Department. . . .
A lawyer for social studies teacher Patricia Mulholland said she was merely conducting an “interactive lesson” on the Holocaust during a class Wednesday. . . .
The alleged victim told authorities that as he was returning to his desk after sharpening his pencil, Mulholland grabbed him by the collar and said, “Come here, Jew,” and dragged him 10 to 12 feet, according to the police report.

She was merely conducting an “interactive lesson,” see? Some other “interactive lessons” she might consider:

  • Bringing bloodhounds to school to chase down students playing “runaway slaves”;
  • Having students re-enact the experiences of the Donner Party, including cannibalism;
  • Using lighter fluid to simulate a napalm attack on seventh-grade “Vietnam villagers”; and
  • Strapping explosives onto students for an “interactive Intifada.”

For their special interactive lesson unit on the 1960s, students will use illegal drugs, have sex and listen to rock music.

Of course, they do that all the time anyway . . .

    And if he smacked Her, saying this is “what freedom fighters do” would that have been OK?

    On Twitter, Mr. McCain [if that is your real name], you compared this teacher, who would only win a beauty contest at The Perkins School For The Blind, to Ilsa: She Wolf Of The SS.

    You, suh, have committed a grave injustice in your slight against the real Ilsa, Dyanne Thorne, who is, if there ever was, a fine example of Rule 5 pulchritude!

    My second will call your third and your fourth, so we can arrange to get together over a fifth on the sixth!

    I love to call fancy restaurants and make reservations in the name of “Mr. Donner” for a party of 12…
