Ok. In class, we've been talking about the concept of citizenship and different types of citizens in the United States. This instance happened today and it was strange because I could see and hear the conversation before it was done...
Mr. H: If you are born in the U. S. or one of its territories, you are a native-born citizen.
7th Grade Student: Mr. H, is Alabama in...
Mr. H sensing the impending question: Wait! Think about what you're about to ask. Make sure that it makes sense.
7th Grade Student: Is Alabama in the United States?
Mr. H: Really?
Another brilliant statement by the future leaders of the world:
7th Grade Student: Mr. H, where did the Indians come from?
Another 7th Grade Student: Indiana, duh.
