Ah, imagine a simpler time when people actually had time to invent solutions for problems that don’t exist, instead of sitting around all day fretting about problems that appear insolvable.
Educators came up with the idea during a brainstorming session, as a way to foster a “calmer and inclusive atmosphere in the classroom,” the Daily Mail reports. Students, ages 7 to 11, are instructed to give a thumbs up and cup it with their other hand rather than wave a hand in the air.
Does anyone out there remember anything negative about raising your hand in school? I remember some days being too bored to bother, or being amazed at the velocity of which some kids could throw their arms around, but I don’t recall ever feeling that hand waving was in some ways disruptive.
