"How many movies do you watch a week?"
She thought a bit, counting up on her fingers and trying to remember. "Oh--I don't know--five or six, maybe more. We watch t.v. pretty much every day in at least one class and any time we have a sub they put in movies or something. We watch stuff like Mythbusters a lot and call it chemistry."
I checked with my son, the IB freshman. He claims to watch "3 movies or tv videos a week, max".
The comments are pretty interesting, from teachers who agree & homeschool their OWN children to teachers who take Mitchell to task for implying they have a "cake" job.
Here's hoping that revolt against lousy instruction goes viral for all subjects.
