Maths students are always asking "When are we ever going to use this stuff?"

This teacher gives practical examples.

Why is he handwriting the tests?

Teachers always complain about how much out-of-class time they spend working, but if they are wasting their time writing out their tests by hand, I'm not feeling a whole lot of sympathy for them.

"The substitute has been asked not to come back to that particular school but it is unclear if he will continue to work at other schools in the district. "

The teacher went too edgy. It was a mistake but to imply that he should be unemployable due to it is ridiculous.

One of the few tests I remember from jr. high and high school was a test that the teacher hand wrote.  He was a coach that taught English.  The test was "Identify the prepositional phrases in the following sentences:", and the sentences were things like "The best teacher in the school that you attend is Coach Larank, he is the reason why you come to school each day."  It was a two paged test, front and back, of arrogant sentences like that.

That, and the American History final where the last question was "In what year was the War of 1812?"

Actually, come to think of it, it was very common for my teachers to write the questions for the tests.

One day my geometry teacher said we were going to learn how to calculate the distance between a point to a line.  I asked what we could do with that skill. He told me to just shut up and learn it.   He was never banned from the school.

Today, I couldn't tell ya how far I am from the Mexican border.

OK, look. I know we have some kind of telepathic link going; but my sample question was going to be "If a gas oven burns at 50,000 BTU and the human body contains 500 grams of water..."

I think our children's education is something that we should all be concerned about. Apparently you think it's okay that the kids were given a test by a substitute teacher. I don't.

Are you going to contribute anything or are you just going to complain about my comments?

Dear AverageAmericanGuy, as a former math teacher, it is far quicker to hand write and add sketches freehand then it is to battle some piece of software when crafting up assignments and tests.

I think their concern, deep down, is not that they learn there are serial killers and peepers, but that the dude teaching their kids is a sexual deviant.

I have had teachers who would do something like using Ted Bundy's name in a question. Never bothered me. The telescope question would make me wonder, though...

So you need better software? Seems like a waste of time to hand write tests every time you need one.

I've suggested a national curriculum that would come with such materials prepared, but that's something a lot of people seem to have a problem with. Probably due to religion, but that's their right, I suppose.

For what it's worth, Creepy John is not a Peeping Tom. PTs are walking and stalking and reaching into windows to move your drapes. You'd never have to be bothered with CJ holed up in his own apartment.Themoreyouknow.jpg

AAG,I've been out of teaching for 10 years, I'm sure there is better software. And good point that you'd want to access it again digitally. But let's say you have a 10 question geometry quiz every Wednesday. A show your work type, just like this guy. So much more freedom grabbing a pencil and a straightedge. The quiz could be created in 20 minutes, and then off to the copier. You can't possibly do that even with the most sophisticated software.

But once it's created with software, you can just call up last year's quiz without having to recreate the test every time.

Not sure I'd want a sub to have to create their own quizzes. Look at what happens when they do that.
 
2013-05-02 12:46:15 AM  
AAG, you are correct. You wouldn't want a sub doing that. Up above is that xkcd comic with the velociraptor quiz. That was so frustrating for me back in the day. You'd type your questions out and leave room for images, that were hand drawn in the end anyway. That is a perfect example of just handwrite the whole thing in the first place.

You break the aligator's jaw, and throw it at the sniper, knocking him out of the window, the grizzly will go for the easier meal.

I love a dark sense of humor, but be sensible, dude.  Everyone's so itchy to use the PC Hammer these days.  I'm all for free speech, but you have to stay within the cultural norms to avoid this kind of backlash.
