For those of you who have been following along with the Misterio del conejo, you will be interested in recent developments in the case. After days of discussion and speculation, my 1st period class wanted to call in our Principal for questioning.
My Principal, who is a ROCK STAR, obliged and this morning we questioned him, in Spanish, Estrella del Día, style. After each question (What’s your name? How are you feeling? Where do you live?) we discussed if he seemed nervous or guilty. Students expressed their opinions in Spanish (One student, standing up, pointing and yelling ¡MENTIOSO!) during the interrogation. (Slightly disrespectful, yes, but in Spanish, so I was proud!)
At one point, he asked if he should get a lawyer and used his phone to fire off a few texts…THEN IT HAPPENED.
GUYS, THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY TEACHING CAREER!
IT’S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE!
Our school police officer busted into my classroom, made our principal stand and escorted him out of the classroom “for further questioning”. This was NOT part of my plan! And this is why my Principal is a ROCK STAR! And we nearly died.
So…then, I spent my prep period writing a newspaper article, describing the latest developments. If you’ve been playing along, please share this with them!
If you’ve got a great theory about how the dead rabbit got in my living room, please explain your theory in slow and comprehensible Spanish in a flip grid video! It would be awesome for students to hear what other classes are speculating!
