Best moment of the first day of class:
I always make them play a name game, to start to get to know one another. So the game is to have an adjective that begins with the first letter of the first name.
We got halfway around the circle, and one student said, "I'm taciturn Tim."
I busted up laughing, and thought of this: Pride and Prejudice
(Embedding was disabled. Sorry.)
None of the other students knew what that meant, so we also got a vocab moment today.
