    There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.

two truths and a lie

School’s back in session, so I’m up to my old tricks. Namely lying to my students. You know, like telling them that they’ll learn stuff that will actually be useful in the real world. Of course! Because I’m sure you remember Avogadro’s number and how to balance chemical equations and all. Right? You use that every day. Uh huh.

So I break them in slowly. With a game. I had an even better version of two truths and a lie for my students this year. It’s probably going to be painfully obvious to y’all. But here they are.

1. I shot over 35 people this summer.

2. I dropped out of law school after two years.

3. My elbow bends backwards.

Which one’s the lie? It’s harder to lie to people who know you. :)

  1. LOL – Love the lies and I know which one is true :) Of course, the play on words with the other two would make it more interesting for the kids. PS – What do you mean you don’t balance chemical equations every day?! Oh my I remember teaching that to my 8th graders – oy!

  2. You’re right. That’s too easy for me. ;-)

    I, uh, actually do kind of remember Avogadro’s number and how to balance chemical equations…but I’m weird. And anyway, like algebra and calculus, it’s not necessarily the facts you are learning that will help you later in life…it’s the discipline and reasoning skills you’re improving on as you learn them!

  3. I’m guessing number 2 is the lie. I struggled long and hard over algebra and geometry and have yet to use any of it. :)

  4. 6.02 * 10^23 is Avogadro’s number. Back when I was working I used mole calculations on a daily basis. Not anymore though!

    Number 2 is the lie :-)

  5. lol, that isn’t even a challenge.

    Congrats on starting back, and on shooting so much over the summer. That is an amazing number :)
