Also about Education+71Knowing the difference between stalagmites and stalactites is a lot less important in adulthood than elementary school made it seem, amirite?
Also by Basuno+84Few things in the world are more heartbreaking than finally deciding you love someone, only to have them break up with you. Amirite?
Also about material, failing, students, test, class, and teach+224More teachers should take responsibility for students failing their class or a test. Obviously if a large number do fail, then they taught the material terribly, and they should try to teach it better next time rather than just saying it's the student's fault because he/she didn't study. amirite?
Also about student, failing, teacher, and fair+421If you were a teacher and your student wrote a wonderful essay but accidentally wrote it on the wrong edition of a book because that's the one their parents bought, you wouldn't fail him. He put all of his effort into his essay to make it as good as possible. Failing him wouldn't be fair, amirite?
Also about Education+33It's like a high school reunion where you think no one will recognize you but they do. amirite?
Also about students, class, and teacher+242It's really inappropriate that a girl in my class stays after school everyday to be with our teacher, they message each other all the time on Facebook, the teacher talks bad about students with her behind their backs, and that he got her a present for no reason. Amirite?
Also about Education+76Actors are technically just high-paid LARPers, amirite?
Also by Basuno+61Unless the power is out, you can never rid yourself of that low humming noise that is around us constantly. Amirite?
Also by Basuno+55Cats seem to sit on anything that looks even slightly important, or that you need. Amirite?
Also about understand, learn, and teacher+216It's annoying when you use a different process than the teacher and you get the same results, but the teacher marks you wrong just cuz you don't like their way of doing something. School is supposed to teach you how to learn, coming up with your own process shows you understand the concept more than blindly following instructions, amirite?
Also about understand, care, students, and teacher+100In order to be a great teacher you must care for and try to understand your students, amirite?
Also about students and fair+95It's not fair to a student with special needs or the rest of us when said students get accommodations they don't need included in their IEP (i.e. accommodations for someone lower-functioning going to a high functioning student who just takes advantage of them). Don't get me wrong, IEP's are a great idea, but I know a kid who deliberately milks his to get more time on tests he doesn't need and extensions on homework he just doesn't feel like doing, and that's unfair to everyone, amirite?
Also about understand, learn, and students+131What most schools and teachers don't understand is that if their students hate a subject, they are probably not going to want a job based on that subject. Sure, the student should learn it, but if they know they hate math, they shouldn't be forced into calculus and trigonometry. amirite?
