Acceptance—Middle School Style

Kristen from Lovely Lydia Design and I are taking a photography lighting class through the local community college. This class happens to be in a public middle school. On a bathroom break we spotted a gem of a poster, made a few years ago. It was a giant rainbow and each student must have been given an index card to write what they were going to be more accepting of in 2009. The rainbow was to signify colors of people and other differences. Some students went another way with what they were going to accept in 2009.

What I would like know is how do teachers keep a straight face through these kinds of projects? Do they take a special class on not busting up? Are you a teacher? Have you ever had to hold it in and then run to the teachers lounge and burst out laughing after class? Because I can see that happening a lot.

  1. “I accept bad graphics.” I want to find this kid and tell them they absolutely do not have to accept bad graphics. Projects like this make me want to be a teacher… or maybe a parent. 😉
