Ainee Fatima, a 27-year-old English and media studies teacher based out of Franklin Park, Illinois, shared a video of herself using her meme stickers to grade exams.
In a follow-up post, Fatima explained that she makes the stickers herself and shared the template.
Fatima said she made the stickers on the spur of the moment, although she'd been considering it for a while, as her 12th-grade students love memes.
"I was just grading and I was really frustrated, and in my head I was just like, I wish my kids could see my face my right now, because the answers they were writing were just incredibly wrong. So I was like, let’s print out some memes." Fatima said.
"So I had sticker paper handy, made a quick template on the computer with Confused Nick Young's face and some positive Gordon Ramsay memes and printed them out!"
Fatima said that she wanted the memes to encourage learning and help erase the stigma that comes with a getting a bad grade on a test. She was happy to see that in action when she passed the graded exams back.
"They love memes — they try to bring them up in class any way they can," she said.
"I handed them back to the kids and immediately they were just laughing everywhere. It took a good couple of minutes to calm them down."
The students did get regular marks, too. The stickers are just some added fun.
