Don’t tell anyone I said this, but I love 8th graders.  Sometimes I have to turn away to hide my amusement during class, other times I just laugh with and/or at them.

Today was no different.  We began our unit on the founding documents of American government.  I use a chart called OPVL (Origin, Purpose, Value, Limitations) to help students understand primary and secondary sources.  While introducing and modeling this chart to one class, a student raised his hand and asked, “What does the ‘O’ stand for again? Orgi?”  He had no clue what he was saying, even when the rest of the class erupted in laughter. 

Bless their hearts.
