Seriously? Eff geography. I love people and world cultures, but a bunch of arbitrary lines and names? Who really cares if everybody knows it? If my kids fail geography I’ll tell them to take their grade and shut up about it. Let the people who care about it ace that junk.
Am i missing something? John never states that he teaches college. He only says he conducted a history exam. And what extra comments? All i see is his comment?!? Is lamebook playing funny buggers again?
LB deleted (didn’t receive?) additional comments on John’s post which are visible on other places that posted it. Including a follow-up in which he was asked if he taught like remedial ret@ards in Kindergarten and he replied that he teaches college.
I live in Indiana, and I can say for certainty that the Midwest is made up of distinct states: for example, Indiana has corn and music, Illinois has music and pizza, and Ohio has crippling shame.
Also: I never noticed this, but apparently the Great Lakes are right outside my window.
i took an online quiz on the location of the states, and i got 98% (i got vermont and new hampshire mixed up). i have only visited the country once, and that was 10 years ago. i am neither an autistic savant, nor a geography teacher, nor do i have a particular interest in the united states of america.
which raises the question: what exactly goes on at american schools? i always assumed they sat around chanting “alabama alaska arizona…”, so that even the dumbest kids would at least know that. how can someone that stupid get into college? americans, where is your education system going wrong?
Yes, it would appear that vincent’s vaunted education from outside the States skipped over percentages.
In any case, American schools are geared toward a singular goal: that no child should ever be allowed to be better than another. To this end, each year they find the stupidist child in the country, and no one is allowed to learn anything that child doesn’t learn. Also, we spend a huge portion of our budget on teaching ret@rds and almost none on teaching normal/smart kids (that money is needed to bomb the mid east, you know).
Thank you Keona.
