I remember when I was in college, my Psychology instructor discussing his thoughts on the public school system and the flaws within it. He would lament on the system trying to shape every student into a square peg to fit into a square hole. He also made it clear that, in his class at least, that we would be graded on a number of factors – including class participation – because not every one is a “test taker,” meaning that even though some of us may be able to retain the information that we learn, that not all of us are good test takers. If he based our entire grade strictly on test scores, some of us would have failed that class – even though those same students really did have a good grasp on the material. I tend to side with Mr. Day and his thoughts on this. We are all different. We all learn in different ways, and we all exhibit what we have learned in different ways. Not only that, but like this video points out – when is the last time you put Pythagorean’s Theorem to work? …Exactly!
