Clip to ScrapBook #10

One time I had a student go home and tell mom she needed to do an entire animal research report complete with bibliography, poster and speech due the next day (4th grade). Mom called to confirm and thank goodness because the assignment was to PICK AN ANIMAL TO RESEARCH!

That funny story told, I am concerned because it's now 2 students with the same story. My suggestion would be the same as everyone else's. Try the teacher one more time, document when and how you have tried to contact her and then go to the admin about it. My guess you are not the only one concerned or unhappy.

Your poor son! I personally think 4th is the best grade and what he's going to remember is unreasonable expectations and a terrible teacher!

Good luck. I, personally, would like to be updated on this if possible. I want to know if any teacher would actually expect this from 9 and 10 year olds!
