How to wake up a student when asleep

1. Student falls asleep in class (of course not as a result of bad instruction, simply the lack of sleep at home)

2. Teacher tells the class to be verrrry quiet

3. Teacher grabs the desk of the sleeping student

4. Teacher begins to violently shake the desk while yelling “EARTHQUAKE!” thus waking the sleeping student

5. Student never falls asleep in class again

    Haha I love you… I’m still trying to figure out how to make this work with 18-year-olds!

    Brilliant! I had some creative teachers… my favorite was a teacher who just kept a little squirt bottle and would spray from the front of the class.
