In a TikTok video, Tyler Jackowski explained that he writes special prompts on his worksheets to keep his students "on their toes."

"I'll write things like 'tell Mr J he smells bad in the chat'," he revealed.

The clip then cuts to Tyler in front of his laptop, as one of the kids dutifully follows the instructions by saying, "Mr. J, you smell."

"That's really rude," comes the teacher's deadpan reply.

"Enjoy detention," he joked in the caption.

TikTok users praise the young teacher's creativity

Meanwhile, the video has racked up over 2.4 million views and nearly 400,000 likes on TikTok, as users were in stitches over his creative study guide.

"It is an effective way to make sure they study," one wrote.

Other teachers chimed in and shared their own creative methods to keep students on their toes, with one writing: "I make one question on every test 'who is your favorite teacher?' and I make it multiple choice and every single choice is me."

Another user recalled they had to stand up in a middle of a test and yell "I love this class" to get ten extra points in a pre-calculus class.

However, someone noted that Tyler's student didn't pay too much attention after all: "You clearly said 'in the chat' and she said it out loud, didn't read the instructions, smh," they joked.
