It's like a mystery...

I spent this morning as I spend almost every morning, watching Boy Meets World, and I came across this gem:

If you have 5 minutes to spare, watch it.  I promise you won't be disappointed.

My favorite line: "It's not like it's just an assignment anymore, it's like a mystery."

Good job Mr. Feeny.  This is what I want.

Fun fact: I recently mentioned Mr. Feeny in school amongst a group of kids and a younger teacher. No one knew got my reference. I really getting that old?

And here's the conclusion, just so I don't leave you hanging.

They don't end up giving the answer, but I like the sentiment.

[sidenote: to put these videos in I discovered You can enter the url from any youtube video and trim it down to just the part you want and then share the link or embed it somewhere.  I can see this being very useful]


  1. These would be fun to show students :)

  2. Thanks for sharing, this is terrific! So many fond memories of BMW!

  3. Love this clip! It has to fit into our first week discussion about persistence, being OK with getting things wrong, and using multiple ways to solve a problem. Thanks for sharing it!

  4. This is fantastic! Goes great with Mathematical Practice #1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Also, so glad you mentioned Tubechop. It will really help with our new policy that we can't show more than 15 minutes of a video at a time.

  5. Of course, I had to figure it out while watching the clips. I agree with Mrs. W that this would be a fabulous illustration of Practice 1. Thanks for the TubeChop tip!

  6. Thanks for the tubeshop tip! Love it! Can't wait to put more videos in my lessons with my kids. I always have to throw in a few fun ones. :)


  7. I loved Boy Meets World as well. So many life lessons packed into 22 minutes of TV ;)

  8. i want to say 4 minutes...each only washes their half
