    I actually have had a few people take my movements and use the in GP tests. I used to do half pass to pirouette to half pass, but then they changed the requirements and said you have to go straight...

    Wow. I want to work in your district. I get reamed if I have 10% failing, even with all evidence that nothing has been done. Boy, is that written down somewhere? I'd love to send that from your...
  3. It's the tail that's getting those scores.

    It's the tail that's getting those scores.

    Yep. I'm a critic. I've been doing freestyles for 25 years.

    I love movie music and I love How to Train Your Dragon. I don't think it was good for this horse, and it sure doesn't enhance the tempo.
  5. Beautiful ride--so elastic and strong. I...

    Beautiful ride--so elastic and strong.

    I really didn't like the music. The only thing it enhanced was the piaffe and tempi changes. The rest of it really just was background and didn't do...

    I've been to both places, as well as many others, and never had to learn another language. We are privileged in speaking English.

    Norway is beautiful, if you can get the sun to come out. There's...

    Hampton Bay--Well, I hope your admin, keeps backing you up. Sadly, my advice about how you get them to think is you have to let them fail when they refuse to do anything. You give them every chance...

    You used to have to send it the score sheets, before computers. You need to list the shows and dates and scores to apply now, so you need to keep track of the scores.
  9. And this is it. It's probably different in...

    And this is it. It's probably different in elementary school, but middle school on, the ONLY difference between passing and failing kids 90% of the time is the effort. And it doesn't matter WHAT you...

    That's a good thing. The new code word at our school is "justify." Whatever. It just means EXPLAIN your answer. It's the difference between recognizing the right answer and really knowing it.

    I sort of have it on now because nothing else is on, but I have to say I'm getting really turned off by all of this ridiculous gushing and marketing of everything. They're selling everything now. And...

    I have a similar mare, with similar bloodlines on the Swedish side. She was a PIA. She was WONDERFUL to ride when she was pregnant. I got most of the good training on her when she was (up to PSG.) I...

    Interesting discussions. Again, this all comes back to levels of thinking. In CC, they're testing to see if the kids are at the lower levels of thinking or can get to the more abstract. Especially in...
  14. Just explain CC this way. It really IS that...

    Just explain CC this way. It really IS that simple. It's just Bloom's Taxonomy of thinking levels. Instead of just finding, locating or recognizing the right answer, you have to explain, understand,...
  15. You're right. It's all about the environment. The...

    You're right. It's all about the environment. The right mix, and it's a wonderful job. The wrong mix, and there's nothing that makes it worthwhile.

    I didn't notice a huge increase in testing with...

    I used to read everything maniacally, but stopped awhile back. I don't even know some of the recent ones.

    LOVE The Stand. It may not seem so cool now with 5 zillion end of the world novels, but...

    I really like this phenomenon of the police going out of their way to show they care.

    I'm near Oakland, which has had unending walks and protests every day for weeks. Most people are nice, but...

    Agree. Please stop. I just know kathy is a good person at heart, as are most everyone else. Let it be.

    Styxx--Love your name.

    Everybody is correct. It is never just one thing. I don't love tenure because it is keeping in the worst teachers. But, there is NO WAY they would actually be fired because...

    Oh, I know the situation in college. It's the big pink elephant everyone is ignoring. If these grades are accurate, that how come 80% of the kids going into community college are two years behind in...

    Well, I'm sure they'll do everything to accommodate special ed. That's where it all is.
    They fear the lawsuits.

    And parents are all over getting special "accommodations" because if they do that,...

    WHoo Hoo for you spotted draft! That is SO rare to hear. And look at how they reacted. SO sad. The problem is, NOTHING will ever change until you threaten to sue. Sigh. That seems to be the key word.
