Teaching With Your Heart … and Small Intestine

 

I’ve heard of going the extra mile to keep your students engaged, but this takes the cake. And for what it’s worth, cake is the reason I won’t be trying this lesson any time soon:

 

A teacher in Spain is baring it all for education.

Veronica Duque, 43, has been teaching for 15 years and currently instructs a class of eight-year-old students in various subjects, including science, social studies, art, English and Spanish. But when she decided it was time to liven up her standard anatomy lesson, she went swimsuit shopping.

“I was surfing the internet when an ad of an AliExpress swimsuit popped up,” Ms Duque told Bored Panda. “Knowing how hard it is for kids this young to visualise the disposition of internal organs, I thought it was worth giving it a try.”

Rather than expose her outer body in a bikini, she wore another type of revealing swimsuit – a full-body wetsuit printed head-to-toe with a diagram of the human anatomy.

Her husband tagged along for a lesson, snapping a few photos of his wife’s “naked” bod in actionand sharing on Twitter.

His post quickly went viral with more than 65,300 likes and 13,000 retweets.

 

I think I’ll stick to the traditional overhead projector slides. As much as I like engaging my students, I like keeping my job more.

  1. Happiness Classroom Says:

    This is the method of teacher to student knowledge transfer. In my opinion, teacher’s physical body should not be shown as the object of demonstration. Instead book to brain knowledge transfer should be focused in the classroom.

    Young students are very interested in drawing, so the knowledge of body parts can be transferred to the kids by using pencils and sketches.

    Merry Christmas !!! Thanks for the writing
