We will begin our PACT review this week. It is always fun to dust off the material from September and October to see what the kids actually remember. I really don’t want to be disappointed, so I’m assuming that they don’t remember much. Now, here’s the question…Do they not remember the information because I didn’t present them the material in a memorable fashion?…or…Did they truly forget because they are teenagers going through changes in their life where their social activity far outweighs the enlightenment ideas of John Locke or Jean-Jacques Rousseau? I know what was going through my mind when I was in middle school…and it wasn’t European Exploration. Maybe that’s why I kind of understand why so many kids “hate Social Studies.” I just wish some of them would try a little bit harder, who knows, they might actually like talking about this stuff…I know I liked it as soon as I tried it…Hey, isn’t there a Dr. Seuss book about that?
