I hate tests. They shouldn’t be allowed to exist. Sigh. I mean, just give us the lesson. You don’t actually have to test our knowledge or give us a mark. If we want to learn, we’ll listen, and we’ll learn. If we don’t, then there are other people in the class who would love to listen to you banter about a subject that I really don’t care about.
From English, I learn new words and all that jazz; Science, I learned about climate and optics, which will come in handy in my future; History, I can relate to many events in history that come up in like presidential/prime minster…al? speeches, or during the school day when we celebrate stuff like Martin Luther King day; Careers and Civics, well that’s the stuff I’ll need when I’m older and have to deal with the jail system (not that I’m thinking about getting arrested or whatever) or getting a job (I think we all need that… unless you’re a hobo then that’s a different story); In Business, you learn about the TSX, businesses, how they run, etc. I might just need that in life. Especially the TSX stuff. Everyone buys stocks these days; In Technology, we learn how to use tools and how to handle wood. Knowledge that I’ll probably use when helping my dad fix our basement; In Biology, I learned enough to be able to identify certain problems/bacteria/organs/enzymes when watching shows like Dr. Oz. All this I learned through school. As much as I hate half those subjects, I still learned something useful. However, I don’t need to be tested for EVERY SINGLE unit, chapter, whatever! It’s pointless, and just makes me rant, as I’m currently doing… Sigh
Also notice how math isn’t there at all? Well, seriously? When will I need to know the equation of a line or parabola. When will I need to know all this trigonometric equations and formulas. I still have them all memorized, but have yet to use it in the real world. All of the useful math, I learned in gr 4-6. Done.
Another good video for Shugo Chara. This time, Utau is also in it.
This is a great opportunity to whoever can sing (I can’t!) Aha~ I love Marianas Trench music~
