  1. I don't know about your horse, but the only...

    I don't know about your horse, but the only saddles that would consistently fit high withered TB types for me are Wintecs.
  2. nhrw--You STILL haven't apologized for being so...

    nhrw--You STILL haven't apologized for being so rude and the personal attacks. It's like you have no manners.

    And, to address your point of what do teachers do when a kid refuses to work. Well, of...
  3. Gawd?? Really? You REALLY have to make nasty...

    Gawd?? Really? You REALLY have to make nasty remarks no matter what, do you? So, you're calling me stupid? Or just not intelligent?

    So, your criteria for being in a honor's class is turning in...

    OK. WHAT standards? Who's evaluating them? Should it be a test everyone takes? Grades? Recommendations?

    I question what your experience is in the workplace, with and without unions. Where does it...
  5. nhrw--I know you didn't make the distinction, and...

    nhrw--I know you didn't make the distinction, and that was the problem. There is a huge difference between a freshman and a senior, especially depending on where they came from. I totally agree there...

    nhrw-cmdrcltr has honors FRESHMAN classes, not senior. You're picking and choosing things out of context. Big difference.

    I totally agree they should be challenging, but what that is is a whole...
  7. Sounds like me. I go to the doctor every year or...

    Sounds like me. I go to the doctor every year or so and say I must have some strange disease. One time we finally figured out I have allergies, but I show no real symptoms except brain cracking sinus...
  8. nhrw--The fact that you don't teach year after...

    nhrw--The fact that you don't teach year after year is showing. I thinking a learning habits grade is a great idea because it is THE number one issue we have with students, especially the lower...

    Yeah. In an email discussion with ahole teacher, he tried to manipulate me into saying I agree with the news system. I responded that no, and in fact I've seen a big jump in students who do no work...
  10. nhrw you are still wrong. BECAUSE of the union,...

    nhrw you are still wrong. BECAUSE of the union, newer teachers have a lot more stability than in other jobs. I agree we need to assess WHAT makes teachers good better, too. We are actually doing that...
  11. You're welcome. I think some people would think...

    You're welcome. I think some people would think your median income is wealthy, so explaining that a professional in charge of your kids tends to get more than the median kind of makes the point,...

    Glad you went. I had a very small cyst, too, and it was the same thing. Unbelievable pain coming and going, no rhyme or reason. It was cysts.

    Well . . . the Walking Dead is on hiatus. I watched originally, then gave up for awhile.

    I had to look this up, so don't think I know this, but I think I kinda started watching with Sean (who...

    Manni, you outed the pony!!

    This is my favorite picture ever. It just seems so perfect. He was my first, and most amazing horse ever. He was probably about 23 here, and blind. He was still doing...

    nhrw lives in a VERY expensive area and is very pissed about salaries. Teachers shouldn't be able to afford a home there. And, once again, the unions are not the cause of this. The unions are the...

    I had cysts. The MOST unbelievable pain I've ever had. First time I was in the ER all night being watched. And, of course, they asked about gas. It feels like the worst gas pain ever, unending.

    I was there at a dressage show last weekend and they were busy working on it. Those going beware the San Mateo Bridge is closed again all weekend! You can't get over from the east that way, and there...

    I don't know anyone who grades on a curve. I can see how it would be appropriate in some cases, as mentioned.

    There are some that grade on the five point scale, or advance, proficient, basic,...

    OK. Sit down. I 100% agree with this. This IS the BIG problem we have, and we're masking low assessments of the standards with it.

    The teacher "leading" the charge in this grade scheme is also...
  23. I know. It's not clear. It's "five" points...

    I know. It's not clear. It's "five" points because it's 0-19 F, 20-39 D, 40-59 C, 60-79 B, and 80-100 A, so there are five "points." It sort of corresponds to state testing scales when they do essays...

    Someone in the know about judging hunters can explain, but when I've looked at videos of the top hunters, of whatever, and brought that up, it didn't seem to be a big issue. It seems you can have...

    No. Summative means a final assessment of the knowledge taught. So, basically the grades are only based on finals. Cumulative work might be the preparation for that--classwork, homework, quizzes. It...
