I don't know that brave is the proper term >.>; "crazy" crazy is a better word for it.

I'm just tired of dealing with our particular school district. I hate standardized tests and everything being taught to them... I always have...

Best example... The ACT told me that I SUCK at the English language. But excel in math and science... The SAT told me I sucked at math and science and that I excel at English.

knowing myself well, I struggle with English and grammar. But not enough to say that I am not at least partially proficient in it. I can spell and write and with the aid of my trusty computer I can actually write really well when I put my mind (energy?) towards it. Like wise I am good at (and even enjoy) math and science. But there are aspects of them that I haven't quite grasped yet. lol... But those two tests have the power to control my future!!!! And that is sooo wrong!

I agree with you, Jazz. I mean hell, all it takes is for you to be having a bit of a bad day to throw off your score. And then there's the simple matter that some brilliant people just don't test well. So we disregard the potential genius for the academic parrot?

And yet, this is what we do!

I mean look at me... TOTAL genius overlooked lol... Just kidding... Though I do so suck at test taking. I freak even when tests have nothing to do with my grades... But it is worse when they DO involve my grades!!!

Doing alright. I am working on history... I'm not sure if this is more my struggling subject or my son's but I seem to take several hours of the day trying to explain it and my son won't focus on it no matter WHEN I do it... Morning afternoon night so far he just screws around the whole time.... V_V

Kids are (largely) visual and history is hard to show. And lets face it, the pictures we have in the school books are *dull*.

Is there a museum you could take him to that might have some of the historical accounts you're trying to teach him?
