So one of my favorite parts of my job teaching high school ESOL is the hilarious stuff kids say and do. Here are a couple of highlights from this week:
(boy explaining why he doesn't want to work on the project we're doing in class): "I hate glue. It's sticky."
(another boy, as students are expected to 'link-up' in groups of four to demonstrate how ATP loses a phosphate and releases energy, explaining why he doesn't want to hold another boy's hand): "But I like girls!"
