Has anybody ever asked whats not wrong? Well our English teacher Mr. Anderson has. During the beginning of the year most of us had no idea what was in store for English class, most of us thought it was going to be another year filled with many tests, boring reading books, and an over whelming load of essays, but Mr. Anderson changed our mind set quite a bit. If I am correct it was a lazy Monday when Mr. Anderson started passing out those removable calender days to everyone. He went up to the white board and wrote WNW? Mr. Anderson said that most us go through life thinking about the millions of things that are wrong, but rarely stop to think of whats not wrong ( if you didn't notice WNW stands for whats not wrong). So each of us wrote one thing that we felt was not wrong, we folded our papers and gave them to Mr. Anderson. He read each one out loud one by one. It was interesting to hear what people believed was not wrong some were funny and some were random, but hey these aren't true or false questions.

Mr. Anderson was the first teacher in my student life to ask us to think about whats not wrong, for all I know one of my fellow class mates could have had a bad day and the concept of writing about whats not wrong in a little piece of paper could have cheered them up. He let us remember the positive aspects in life when we need it to help get us through the day. So as an English teacher Mr. Gary Anderson was able to help us think positively, but what if we did this on a global spectrum. I mean the idea behind just making everyone sit down and think about the positives in their lives.

What do you think? If you have questions or comments please respond below. Thank You!

I really liked the What's Not Wrong? activity too! It's perfect for those who've been too caught up in their own lives or other things and has been in an unhappy mood lately, or anyone really!  Your thought on leveling it up to a global spectrum is just plain genius. These days, not as many people are as happy as they were in the past. So many people have been too caught up in their own world that they end up forgetting the good things in life. There are many things in life that people take for granted as well and this is a perfect way to make people more aware of the good things in life as well as the things we shouldn't be taking for granted.

I loved doing WNW throughout the year. It got me excited for English class and made some very boring days very fun. I think it ways a great way to keep class morale up.

You cant go wrong with "What's Not Wrong." This simple little game really made the school year so much fun just knowing that at any moment we could play it made me feel so much more excited for English. Good post!

What's not wrong was awesome, because it made your day a lot better by listening to some positive comments. It makes you forget about the negatives around the world for a moment a makes you think about what's really not wrong.

I too have never really thought aabout what's not wrong witht the world so the first time I had to come up with something I was really confused. i didnt know what to put down because there were so many options. However, after the first one I got used to it and I look forward to doing it everytime.
