Not My America
I am not one of those who say of Trump, "He's not my president."  Of course, he is by definition of having won the Electoral College vote (though not the vote of the people) and by definition of me being an American.   However, what he symbolizes is an alie...

Actually, this was not exactly high-stakes, but the attitude the kids had towards it was about the same. On Wednesday, all juniors in the Oklahoma City Public School district were required to take the SAT exam.  This is the brainchild of someone brought int...

Bubble-in Test Week
Tomorrow we will begin the district benchmark tests, which will take about 3 classes to complete. I have never found these tests to yield much in the way of useful data because many of the students do not take them seriously.   We keep doing the same thing ...

Tomorrow--Another Day, Another Test
Tomorrow all juniors in our school will take the SAT. I suppose that this has something to do with getting our students "college and career ready," the new mantra of education gurus.  Pretty much the way all teachers feel these days I am expecting that some...

Giving Benchmarks
Today I gave the school district "benchmark" tests in English III. These are designed to find out how much the students have learned so far this year. Good luck with that. Students dislike taking these tests as much as I dislike giving them. The first thing...
