The Joy of Teaching

I found this while I was cleaning out my old school binder.

Then Jesus took his disciples up to the mountain and gathered them around him. 
He taught his disciples this saying:    

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
Blessed are the meek. 
Blessed are they that morn.
Blessed are the merciful. 
Blessed are they that thirst for justice. 
Blessed are you when you suffer. 
Be Glad and rejoice for your reward is great in heaven. 

Then Simon Peter said, "Are we suppose to know this?" 
And Andrew said, "Do we have to write this down?" 
And James said, "Will we have a test on this?" 
And Phillip said, "I don't have any paper!" 
And Bartholomew said, "Do we have to turn this in?"
And John said, "The other disciples didn't have to learn this."
And Matthew said, "May I go to the bathroom?"

Then one of the Pharisees who was present asked to see Jesus' lesson plan and inquired of Jesus, "Where is your anticipatory set and your objectives in the cognitive domain?" 

And Jesus wept. 

 Oh the joys of teaching...
