"You could write a book on each one of my thoughts." -Tupac Shakur

I gave my video students a fill-in-the-blank quiz about some background material for our latest movie, Freedom Writers. Two recurring topics in the movie are gang life and the Holocaust, so the students had to do some research on these. Imagine my surprise when I read their quizzes and learned this fun fact:

"In 1995, a rapper named ANNE FRANK was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada."

Yes, thanks to my excellent teaching, there is at least one Chinese student who believes that the Holocaust diary-writer hiding in the attic was, in fact, a Thug 4 Life.


  1. hahahaha. you're funny. this made me laugh. TUPAC is alive and well!!! hahaha.

  2. Good to hear that you're excelling at teaching. I would hate to think that any of your students might be getting the wrong idea about anything. I'm glad that you're making the content very clear.
