I guess considering my post the other day, I should relate this particular story because it’s hilariously appropriate …
RMS Titanic sank in the early hours of April 15 1912, after being struck by an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.
But for many of the younger generation, the ship is more familiar from the 1997 film about its demise starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.
So … I guess this could be one of the wonderful side effects of the “Well, if it’s not relevant to them, they’re not going to want to learn about it and if they’re not going to want to learn about it, you shouldn’t try to teach it because they should decide what they want to learn because your role is no longer to impart knowledge or actually be a teacher but to be a warm body in their presence because you are not innovative and your union has manipulated their lives to put you there to abuse them” attitude that I seem to read a lot about?
I don’t know, but I’m definitely laughing.
