"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller

Two of my eighteen classes of high school sophomores have particularly challenging behavior... and particularly low levels of English, often leaving me clueless as to how to teach and manage 75 students at once.

Well, this week, I decided to play a game using paper airplanes. If they could answer my English question, they could throw their airplane at a target and potentially earn candy.

My favorite part of the lesson was when I introduced it.

"Do you know "airplane"?"

The resounding reply, "NO!"

Though they didn't know "airplane," I figured I'd go out on a limb. "Do you know "paper airplane"?"

All 75 students at once, "YES! WE KNOW!"

They would.
