3. me too

I am being moved to lead the PBS unit at our school and thought that might be a way to help.

They are probably out of date and out of print

I would buy both and english and a history kid

4. Are the reading boxes the ones with different colored tabs as the lessons got harder?

I think Red was the highest level?

6. yes

and you could do 2-4 in one class period. It was a fantastic idea and probably being able to move at my own pace, I wanted to do the whole box as fast as I could

7. Ohhh, I remember those!

I have always been a fast reader and I just loved it when we took some time out from regular English class in 7th and 8th grade to do those. Made me look a lot smarter than I am.

I also loved standardized tests because I could in some ways game them. I am a fast reader, and if (as often happened) the first page of the test had the first two or three questions, while the teacher was reading through the instructions each and every time, I could look at those questions, determine the answer, and then when we were given the go-ahead to start, mark the answers and go straight to the next page.

One time I finished a test you weren't supposed to be able to finish (much to the astonishment of the proctor) and got about halfway through double checking my answers before time was up.

While I like to think I'm pretty smart, I always over-scored on those kinds of tests, especially compared to someone who knew as much or more than I did but simply wasn't as fast as I was.

Timed tests unfairly penalize some people and with equal unfairness reward others.

I rolled through the SRA cards and I too started the test during the instructions

10. Oh, yeah! I remember those. At least I think so, from second grade clear back in

1965. Wow. Blast from the past.

I remember devoting a whole afternoon to them while the teacher did other stuff with the other kids. I don't remember why, though. Maybe I was temporarily ahead on that assignment or something.

Again, a blast from the past for an aging Boomer!
