NOW YOU’RE LEARNING
Arggh, teenagers! Jennine’s son was complaining, again, about having to go to school.
“I’ll never use anything they’re teaching.”
She surprised him by agreeing – almost. With the exception of English and basic math, until you get to post-secondary, none of the subjects are really useful.
School is for learning to learn; to marshal your thoughts, to receive and research knowledge, to order and rate it, to work with others, to be an individual – and part of a group.
School teaches about stress, responsibility, persistence, honesty, and deadlines. School teaches about reality, work, and life. School can be an ever-flowing fount.
Got to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.
