Several of you have lamented that you’re unable to visit my classroom
and experience all the gripping drama and theatrics – Especially
after last week’s shocking transformation.
Confidentiality restrictions prevent me from videotaping my classes at
will, so allow me to present you with the next-best thing: a Flash animation.
Live the “Mr. White’s Classroom” experience in the
comfort of your own home or workplace. With this on-demand service, get
a taste of my teaching style and demeanor any time you please. You’ll
feel just like a student in my classroom!
Do you want to be in the “good” class with the Old Mr. White,
who established respect and professionalism as the cornerstone of his
classroom? No problem!
Would you prefer to be in one of the “bad” classes, and feel
the unbridled fury of the New Mr. White? You got it!
Enjoy… and you’re welcome.
to the technologically-challenged: Once the file has finished
downloading, a red button will appear. Click the red button to “enter
the classroom.” Once inside the classroom, click the buttons
on the chalkboard to make stuff happen. The top button randomly
plays one of eight animation clips for each of the two scenes, so
click away until you get bored.
posted a “clean
version” of this animation on another web space, in which
I take a little more care to bleep out two instances of foul language
in the “New Mr. White” clips.
I’ve also posted a “bhs
version” on the other web space. I will give my students
the web address to this version. All “New Mr. White”
audio is removed, the unflattering descriptions of the students
in the opening scene (“horrible heathens,” “precocious
pukes,” “bratty buttheads”) are removed, and the
New flag reads “Be quiet” instead of “Shut up.”
Flash Player 6 or later installed in your web browser, and a computer
that isn’t too ancient. The graphics may stall on older
window: If you’d like the animation to fill your browser
window, you may directly
view the SWF file, but the graphics tend to stall as you fill
more of the screen.
The “talk” button plays the Mr. White clips in random
order. However, there are hidden buttons at the top of the animation
window that will allow you to select which clip to play. The buttons
become visible as you place the cursor over them.
this is how I’ve spent much of my week off.
