As I walk about the front of my classroom, rifling through stacks of paper, looking for the handout I made yesterday, I speak to my class...
"Guys, the best and most important thing you can learn about writing for school is to have an organizational pattern. (I flip through a stack of papers) I learned a pattern when I was in High School that I was able to use through college and now I teach it, (I lift up a stack of books) I can't emphasize enough the importance of organization in your writing."
I find what I needed and look to see that most of my class is trying to hide their laughter...at me.
"And so what literary element would this be?""Irony"-- from the whole class.
