I don't get it, either, but I think it's gone on forever as long as there have been teachers and students.

Study Island Question

I think they mean for the students to give their answers in cubic inches of water, not gallons. (This problem is assessing a 5th grade CC math standard; volume of a rectangular prism.)

I've taught in systems with 10 point scales and 7 point scales, where a 70 was either a C or the lowest D. In both systems concerns such as your were...

Make and take

If the folks on that campus don't know/understand the content of this particular subject area then a "make and take" workshop is not the most effective way to help them learn it. They need to work on...

Don't set your dog up for scolding. Anything with...
