This delicate morsel needs some help. I think sending pomegranates to her in Des Moines, Iowa might calm her down.

One of those kids needs to push her right over the edge by placing a nice pomegranate on her desk.
OHH, She definitely called for The Streisand Effect to come into play.
Oh, THIS bothers you in a great and unreasonable way? Thanks! Time to promote a pomegranates in the lunchroom and snack machines. Plant a Pom tree on campus. Start of petition to have “Pomegranate week” on campus. Something. Endless possibilities. Triggered!
All psychologists and psychiatrists (voodoo doctors) are crazy! That’s why they become Psychologists and Psychiatrists (snake oil salesmen) so that they can determine what crazy is (which does not include themselves)! What a racket they have invented! We allow these crazy people to determine the undeterminable and allow them to prescribe expensive mind-altering medications, and give useless therapy while getting filthy rich while doing so! They should be banned by law from practicing their phony, pseudo head doctor scam! Society at large has been harmed more by Psychologists, Psychiatrists, and social workers than all other occupations combined!
I totally agree with her. Have you seen how many seeds are in just one pomegranate? If the seeds of every pomegranate was allowed to come to fruition there would be no room for any other life on the planet. We must all join her crusade.
Uh, guys it was a teaching method as described in two of the links here. I’ve had teachers that have done similar things, who’ve taken ridulous positions and defended them until the students were in an uproar. Never with fruit though, that’s a new one. Did get us to actually think about what point they were trying to get across.
Exactly. My principal once walked in on me when I was throwing Pop-iT toys across the room to my second graders. I was teaching expanded notation of two digit numbers. They learned the concept immediately and didn’t forget the terminology nor the concept -even the slower students. Current thought and teachers’ manuals said that those math terms were too advanced for that age group. bs
The only critique from the nun was not to sit on my desk. (My feet were hurting.) 🙂
