How Smart Are Teachers?

smart teachersThis video has been spreading across ye olde social networks lately and, while I think teachers are some of the brightest and most motivated people in the world, this video depicts something a bit different. The video was done to be funny but it hits on an important question: just how smart are teachers? Is this video actually accurate? Probably not.

Answer the below questions BEFORE watching the video to test your knowledge. After you write down the answers (or just remember them – no need to write) watch the video below to see the answers.

  • How many continents are there?
  • What is 1,000 multiplied by 1,000?
  • What is 7 multiplied by 9?
  • What is the biggest planet in the solar system?
  • What does ‘DNA’ stand for?

There are many other questions that don’t translate well into asking them via text (for example, spell the word ‘zucchini’) so just watch the video and share your thoughts.

    I can’t access the video, Jeff. The screen says “This video is private.” Can it be opened up? Thanks.

    The video was made private by the creator. Nothing I can do. Sorry!
