Joys of Teaching: P.E. sure has changed!

Context: The vocabulary word is abhor.

Student's illustrative vocabulary sentence: I abhor P.E. class because I hate to exorcise.

Ms. K's marginalia*: Wow, I would hate P.E. too if I had to exorcise!

* Ms. K does not recommend giving sarcastic feedback to student work, but given the rapport she had already established with the above student, she knew this would not crush his spirit.

Yeah, one must be careful in using sarcasm in the subject of exorcising, since it has the ability to crush "spirits"!
