In sixth grade my math teacher insisted that instead of saying "Eleven point one two five", we have to say "Eleven and one hundred twenty five one thousandths". It's the only time in my life I've ever heard anyone use that terminology for basic decimals.

Another time in 12th grade spanish class we had to write an entire story in spanish using like, 50 instances of subjunctive tense verbs. That wasn't the stupid thing though, we actually had to illustrate the story as well, and she showed us an example story about penguins from a previous class. But after weeks of painstaking work, she told me my illustrations (which took 90% of the time I spent on it) could not be graded because they weren't colored in. Obviously the example story wasn't colored in because of the penguins. So with the illustrations counting for 50% of the assignment, I had to stay after school and color in every last page or fail the assignment for SPANISH class.

>could not be graded because they weren't colored in

Think I remember being made to color in the white areas with a white crayon.  Also, we had to go over the black lines with a black crayon.  I remember asking why, and was told 'that's what the lines are for' or something.  I mean, looking back, I suppose it was to develop motor skills.

In college, an instructor made us type C++ code verbatim from the textbook for assignments.  Should have tried an OCR, but I suppose that would have been cheating.

Ah, well.  No more controlling teachers for me; I'm done.  Or at least as done as I'm going to be.

Right before graduating from school on the last year, some guys in my classroom startes spreading rumours that I was scoring a certain girl from another class.
It seemed silly at first, but the thing got so out of hand, so quickly, that in the very same day that the rumours began, the teachers sent me to the school counselor's room alone, and the counselor advised and demanded me to apologize to the girl, since she was a very reserved and shy person.

So yes, I went and apologized for something I didn't do and didn't began, because somebody thought it would be fun to start these rumours.



Other than that, I did had to stand in front of class and hold a drawing on paperboard whilist I had the most raging morning wood of all my life. I tried to refuse getting up from my chair, but it was no use, the teacher demanded me to go along with my classmates and humiliate myself with a magical stick almost coming out from my pants.
That one doesn't really counts however, because the teacher was unaware of the alarming conditions going on inside my pants at that time.

Aside from the classics of routinely punishing me for daring to react to being viciously bullied on a daily basis, I don't remember a lot from the actual lessons themselves that were really beyond stupid. It was mostly pretty standard stuff. The one "stupid" thing I can remember wasn't really a bad teaching method per se… my teacher just hadn't really thought it through. It's really more of a funny anecdote.

In about 8th grade, we were about to have sex ed. This is a much more relaxed topic in Denmark, so no immediate issue there. My teacher at the time was a bit of a former hippie, so rather than do a lecture or a strict lesson plan, she decided to go about it a particular way. She split the class up by boys and girls and basically  decided that one group went into this other room to watch an old instructional video, and the other stays in the classroom and can just freely ask me any questions that I will answer.

A good idea in theory. But what do you think happens when you leave a bunch of 14-year old boys alone with the VCR in a nearby classroom for an hour, when they KNOW this is gonna happen?

Sure enough: Someone brought a VHS tape with porn he had recorded the day before. So the second she was out of the room and had started the tape, out the instructional video went and in went the porn.

It was probably the LEAST arousing situation I have ever fucking been in.

We weren't found out.

>LEAST arousing situation

Sounds like more adolescent rebellion.  I do think there's some educational value in porn, though, although at what age someone is prepared to be able to learn is not for me to say.

Actually reminds me, we had a priest come over once, and my little brother was going through a phase of interest in anatomy, so my sister and I thought it would be good to clandestinely suggest our little brother demonstrate his knowledge of the sexual parts to father.

 No.517297

Sure we did. This wasn't the only lesson, and there was still rotation so we could just ask questions.

Sides, this was an old instructional video called "Sex and Cigarettes". the odds that it actually said anything a bunch of 14-year olds hadn't already found out don't seem that high.

>>517294
There was none here. It was from a cheap semi-local channel that used to show really bad porn at like 3 AM. I remember staying up to watch it one time and being beyond disappointed at just how lame it was.

The only other "dumb thing" I can think of is less of doing something completely ridicilous and more of being extremely nonpractical.

My 7th grade music teacher got the bright idea that we had to watch Amadeus. Which is a good idea and a great movie, by the way.

The thing is we had ONE music lesson a week. A lesson was usually 45-50 minutes long. And each lesson we had to spend time going off to get the fucking TV, drag it into the classroom, hook it up, start the movie and fast forward to wherever we'd ended it at last time.

Amadeus is 2 hours and 40 minutes long. You do the math.

Same teacher did the same thing in Religion class when she showed us Passion of the Christ. On the other hand, she DID use these thigns to give us challenging and thoughtful assignments - with that last one, she wanted us to consider and report on what we think the movie might have done differently if created by people from different religious groups, for instance.

I forgot a lot of stuff.  That would have been a bad rule.  Usually had to be exposed to some kind of group shame.  "If you can't remember X, how will you remember to do your taxes when you're an adult!"  *shrug* Somehow I've managed, I guess.

If that was your only punishment, seems you did OK with school, though.  Suppose I did, too, to a point.

If my teachers made me do something I thought was pointless I would flat out tell them I wasn't going to do it.

Our P.E. teacher was stubborn though. We had to run a mile as a class. I straight up told him in the beginning, 'Give me an F on this, cause I'm not doing it.'

Of course, he forced me to do it anyway. I finished in about an hour and 15 minutes. It was a 45 minute class.

Most of my teachers learned quickly not to fuck with me, because I was not likely to take their shit.

One of my teachers once asked me why I never did my homework. I asked her, "Can I sleep in your class?" she then said, "No, of course not." and I replied, "Well, if I can't do here what I do at home, why do you expect me to do at home what I do here?"

Well, she wasn't exactly a stable type. She once started hysterically screaming at one of my classmates because he was talking in class, and she once broke a wooden ruler by smashing it into the blackboard. Not because somebody did something wrong, but because she wanted to let us know that class was starting.

I have no idea why she stayed employed for as long as she did, but last I heard she finally got fired for public displays of misandry against male students. Imagine my shock.
