I teach choir. I talk to my students about when I was in high school. They laugh and call it "back in the day." I then tell them back in the day we san 4 to 6 part harmony without accompaniment and won first place in state festivals.
I would definitely agree with the idea that kids have it easy in a lot of areas in comparison to what I had to do in high school. Yet, at the same time, I didn't take calculus in high school like my nephew is right now either.
jason, I'm glad your nephew can handle it. Calculus and stats are available at my school but a small percentage of students take them and pass them! We have students taking two periods of math to try to come up to grade level.
You have to wonder sometimes, at what point are we trying to force kids to do too much and not letting them live their childhood.
Jason, it is com-plee-kated!
thank you Clover. We can all differentiage our "x's."
I wonder if there will be at least one keyboard in every home. Those of us who have them would be surprised to know of students who do not have computer acceass at home.
