Weep-for-the-Future Exchange of the Day

Me: Ok, what year was the Declaration of Independence signed?

6th grade student: *blank stare*

Me: Remember the 4th of July? So, July 4th, Seventeen...

6th grade student: *blank stare*

Me: July 4th, Seventeen Seventy...

6th grade student: *blank stare*

Me: ...1776...?

6th grade student: *blank stare*

Me: ...1776. Haven't you talked about that in school?

6th grade student: No.


T-Jeff considers just scrapping the whole thing, since, WHO'S EVEN GOING TO REMEMBER IT, ANYWAY?!?

Muhahahahahaha. Love that you're blogging again, even if it made me a little angsty and glad I'm teaching Korean kids and not American ones.
