Teachers Everywhere Are Stepping Up to the Grading Papers Lip Sync Challenge

2 min


Everyone has either been to one of his epic teacher training conferences, read one of his famous books, watched his life story in the movie played by Chandler from Friends, or seen one of his viral videos hip-hop dancing with his students. Founder of the impressive Ron Clark Academy—Mr. Ron Clark—recently started a hashtag challenge on his Instagram page that’s started a wave on social media. The challenge came into fruition while he was grading some papers, jamming out to some Lady Gaga, when it hit him: Grading doesn’t have to be so boring! That’s when he recorded his awesome lip sync performance and posted it to Instagram with the hashtag #gradingpaperschallenge, calling on all teachers to post themselves having fun grading to their favorite song.

Since Mr. Clark posted the video to IG on Wednesday, teachers all over have been responding to the challenge with some epic performances of their own. Who knew grading could be so much fun! Here are 20 of our favorite responses, so far.
