"If a child does not learn in the way we teach him, we must teach him in the way that he learns"...Anonymous
I was teaching the SAT Prep class. It was the first day, and I had a gigantic young man come in late and sit on the front row (teanagers start at the back of the room and come forward until the seating chart is made). I told them I needed to gage where they were, so I could help them move forward. We were going to take a practice SAT that would be timed. I started the timer, and notices the gigantic young man just sat there. I waited a minute thinking he was deep in thought, but he didn't even open the packet of questions. I quietly went to him, knelt down and said, "You do understand this is a timed test to help me know where you are in your knowledge base." "I don't care," he said. "I'm not takin' no test." "You do understand that this whole semester class is about preparation for the SAT test. The entire curriculum is test taking," I implored. "Nope," he said. "I signed up for the SAT class...that means I get to sat for a whole semester! This is a sattin' class, plain as day." I sent him to the counselor for a schedule change, but I never laughed in his presence!

KIDS! They are cheap entertainment! I love to watch the "lightbulbs come on" when they discover something new.
