Day 112 (of 185) my rebel teenage daughter
My teenage (grade 11) daughter knows how to push my (educational) buttons sometimes. I like to say that she’s my rebel because she likes doing homework…..in cursive script….to score high points in the game of school.
So tonight (wednesday at 6pm pst is #sblchat – standards based learning which always has some top-notch, published edu-leaders in the field of assessment and evaluation and reporting) it was very appropriate for her to say: Guess how I’m doing in my science class….
and I could tell that it would be an answer that would drive me (and many from #sblchat) a little crazy.
As Ken O’Connor tweeted:
A3 Compliant students who get behaviour points and extra credit are winners and losers. #sblchat
The nice-for-me part is that she ‘gets it’ that it’s part of the game-of-school…the bad-for-me part is that she knows she can get under my skin with it, because I still have to appreciate her academic accomplishments…..!
