Sometimes, in order to keep students interested in learning, teachers have to come up with creative ways to improve class participation. And one teacher at Citizens Academy East in Cleveland did just that.

Kelli Littlejohn recently visited her son's classroom and discovered that the students' vocabulary lesson came courtesy of "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)." 

"Now watch me work, to learn my vocab," the students shouted.

"Oh, teach me. Oh, teach me," they continued.

The students even got a bit peeved when the song stopped because of technical difficulties. 


Although some people are probably tired of hearing the song, the teacher definitely should be commended and gets an A-plus for using different learning techniques to encourage class participation.
