Groundhog Day, in which Bill Murray plays a weatherman who is finds himself living the same day over and over must be based on my algebra class.
On Monday, I teach them how to graph inequalities.
On Tuesday, I go over it again because, based on the homework and their response to the do now, they can't do any.
On Wednesday, I do the exact same problems I did on Monday. The look at me all smiley and say they get it.
On Thursday I hear, "Ms, you didn't teach us this." I begin the process again.
On Friday I try to give a test but the papers come in blank.
Most of my students don't remember this movie, they are way to young, but when I told them this story, they immediately related it to 50 First Dates, a romantic story about a girl who never remembers previous dates and the guy in love with her who never stops trying.
I didn't see either of these two movies as I thought they were too far fetched. Little did I know I would be living the life of the lead character several years after they came out.
