I was always a good student, but three decades later I still remember my 4th grade teacher.  She would make everyone's papers bloody with red ink.  It was farking demoralizing.  I hope the coont is burning in hell today.

shtychkn: No Child left behind replaced the credit requirement with a standardize test instead.


The credits requirements from the bachelor's degree were to let me begin the education program at my college. (Folks doing the 4 year 'from scratch' version began the education courses only in their third year once the other credit requirements were complete.) Being on the final year of the education component was a (college) requirement to be allowed to attempt Praxis II - PLT and Praxis II - Content Area (which were typically attempted on the same grueling day.)

shtychkn: 3 to 5 problems explaining and then 5 to 10 show your work questions for practice would be more educationally sound then the 30 to 45 questions students tend to do now.


I'm also going to need a citation for this as well. It definitely reads like a scare-the-teahadists email propaganda. We might do _one_ 'explain your reasoning' question in a question set, but certainly never 30-45.

Like I said. The is no citation outside of the standards cause I'm not making a claim as to how many they will need to do.

The standard just says they need to do them. Districts, schools, and teachers will set how they fulfill the standard.

The bolded bit might need clarification or retraction, don't you think?

The 30 to 45 they do now isn't the explain type, as the new standards are not adopted yet.

That was in reference to the normal homework math teachers have been giving for 50 plus years. And my belief that with the new standards teachers would reduce the number of homework problems because of the longer time it would take to complete the problems assigned with the new standards

See previous post.

30 to 45 was about how homework is given now and Historically, not a prediction of the new system.

shtychkn: Ruiizu: I still grade everything in red ink when I can. It is visible, and it is obvious what it typically means.

/most of my "red ink" was the A at the top of the page
//public school is way, way too easy

Set the bat for an A higher?

I'm guessing you taught elementary or middle school?


I meant on my own papers, not the graded ones. Was being elitist/arrogant, playing out how easy I felt school was.

Trying to have a moment of "yes, I remember school being a breeze because I was awesome" moment, gosh.

/I've been to all 3 levels of school as a teacher though
