Today, my music students began a lively debate about whether or not a music stand would make a good weapon for the zombie apocalypse. What am I teaching them? FML

I've had that debate,

Happens in every band class at least once a year

The other day my class got in a twenty minute argument over Star Wars fan theories, and we're a college level class. I wouldn't worry about your teaching effectiveness.

Really, what do you expect from musicians?

My band class has had that conversation too.

All I want to know is which side had a better argument and whose side were you on?

<p>The fact you think this is an FML is the biggest disappointment.Had you encouraged the discussion and let them use their brains and imagination to work out logical solutions to the problems of the situation...... well that's the difference between a teacher and a *great* teacher who gets remembered.</p> <p>Well, just my opinion.</p>
