Inside This Teaching Life: That's Mine Now!

When you were a student, did you ever have the teacher take away some Forbidden Item? Usually, the teacher would utter those immortal words, "That's mine now!" as the offending article was confiscated.

Maybe it was a note, some bubble-gum, or a magazine the you'd rather your mother not know that you had in your possession....

Here's a
pretty good roundup of contraband things that've been taken from kids in the classroom. (Be sure to follow the links.)

The one about the
dead owl depressed us, the one about the handcuffs amused us, but the Pencil of the Unknown Cheater struck a little too close to home.
