A student of Abia State University has had us in laughs as he narrated the quite funny way he handled a sassy student who tried to be smart with him during his class.
Chris Ifeanyi, who volunteered to teach high school students to pass time as the ASUU strike continues, said he asked a question in class and one of his students gave a sarcastic reply. Other students expected him to punish the girl and waited with trepidation but he had other thoughts.
He narrated the incident, writing:
I volunteered to teach some secondary school students literature while ASUU thinks its my destiny they are playing with. A bell went off and since I am not yet familiar with their bell signals, I asked the class if that bell was for going home.
One girl answered with side talk “No sir it’s for assembly”
I heard her, the class heard her too and took to that hushing silence of trepidation as per someone has spoken out of turn and should expect the worst ? ? ?
“Class, do you all realise what she just did?”
“She just insulted you”
“Oh no, she gave us an example in figures of speech, Sarcasm. And for a topic we have not yet broached Emmanuella has displayed excellent wisdom hence, she’d be leading the discussion in our next class which would be figures of speech” I changed scheme of work ? ? ?
“I’m sorry Mr Chris, I was just playing”
“it’s alright my dear, the best way to learn is by playing”
You will die on top of question tomorrow, you think you can talk anyhow
