  • help the kids to learn that they can do anything they want just keep trying.
    for them to take their time when doing their work not to rush thru it. they can take their time & do it right.
    always ask questions if they need help.

  • respect

  • Respect, how to write a PROPER sentence, paragraph and paper. I would teach the basics. I would teach them how to make change WITHOUT the aid of a calculator or computer. Critical thinking.

  • I teach my students about history and how we can learn from it. Respect is something their parents should be teaching them, not me.

  • an incomplete list:
    world history, chronologically, the classical approach
    computer literacy
    basic home skills: cooking, cleaning, gardening, home maintenance
    life skills: balancing a checkbook, filling out tax forms, job applications, resume and interviewing skills
    for P.E., that fitness is for everyone, not just jocks and that there are solitary and non-competitive forms of excercise
    cultural literacy
    civics, the responsibility of being an educated voter and paying attention to current events and participating in our democracy
    smart consumer skills (including media)
    for art: drawing on the right side of the brain (basically, that anyone with the manual dexterity to tie their shoes can draw a realistic likeness of objects and people)
    critical thinking and logic
