While Game of Thrones season 4 is about to kick off here in the U.S., much of the rest of the world is a season behind. A Belgian teacher used that to his advantage by threatening Game of Thrones spoilers on his classroom of unruly students if they didn’t quiet down.
The math teacher asked his class who watched Game of Thrones and when the majority said they did, he gave them an ultimatum:
Pay attention or he would reveal who died in Game of Thrones season 3 since he’d read the books.
The students tested him by refusing to quiet down, and he followed through, writing the name of a dead character on the board. Around 20 students sighed in resignation.
Listen up, teachers, and people who teach teachers how to be teachers. THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE, OKAY!?
After the incident, a student in the class relayed a tale of the session on French forum DanstonChat.com saying “My teacher is a genius.”
The classroom, wrote the student, has observed a “religious silence” since the list went up on the board.
Mischief managed indeed!
