    I believe kids need freedom, not structure. I swear I give every parent who yells at their kid in public the death stare/stink eye. I don't believe in controlling kids. The only thing that bothers me really is when kids bully each other. Even running around, I think, is good for kids. They need exercise. It's good for their health.

    I guess I just need some life advice. Am I getting too ahead of myself?

    If you want to read something both inspiring and sad at the same time, read up on education in Finland. No standardized testing, and students near the top of most international measures of ability.

    I heard about that. My Developmental psych teacher was telling us about their education system.

So many people hate school and hate learning here because they aren't being shown how fun education can really be when a subject interests you!
    I do agree that getting rid of subjects like art and music is misguided. Most school districts, though, don't give enough attention to especially science, and more advanced math, despite all the current hype. Or perhaps it is just the wrong kind of attention - very political and flashy, but without the substance necessary to support real learning. You can in fact teach any subject through science, so it is hard to imagine too much time spent on it.

    To be honest 80% of science classes here are just a review of the scientific method that everyone learned in 1st grade... and maybe a little extra. My college science classes were so fun. I wish high schools around here offered high school level classes like astronomy. That was one of the most intriguing classes I ever took.

    How were you taught scientific method in first grade? I routinely encounter middle schoolers who don't know it, or who at least cannot apply it to an actual investigation.

    We get the steps/process burned into our brains. This:
    1. Ask a question
    2. Research it
    3. Make a hypothesis
    4. Test it/experiment
    5. Form conclusion
    6. Communicate results

    Then we'd do "easy experiments" like testing if a goldfish is more active (measured by fin wiggles per minute) in x oz of water vs. x oz of water. Little experiments with results that are obvious from the get go, just to get you used to practicing the method.

    Did you continue to use this method throughout your schooling, or was it mostly a feature of first grade, and you moved on to other things afterwards?

    Every grade after that, 50% of the class was just a review of this method that had already been burned into our brains long ago. And yeah, after that we basically just moved on to whatever the curriculum forced us to cover.

    It wasn't as bad in high school. But it sucked in the earlier grades.
