January 11: Hard questions and a mutiny.

Well, I have never seen so many kids who WANT to do worksheets and read out of the book.  I usually try my best to get my students to think for themselves and work outside the worksheet/text realm in order to stay current and keep things exciting and challenging, but apparently that isn’t very popular.  At least it wasn’t with the questions I assigned yesterday.  They were asked to explain at what point do the top 8 elements in nature come together and exhibit signs of what we would call “life” and they thought that question was too hard.  Well, I hate to say it but I’m going to keep challenging my kids.  There is so much more to life than reading a text and questions on a worksheet.  I’m going to keep pushing my students to think hard and write well.  Their success is dependent upon more than rote memorization.  Tomorrow, it gets harder.
