  • Leading From The Heart » History, Oh History…
    so far The rest should be up soon 2 wee things called report cards and final classes are taking up some time this week I love teaching this course though I absolutely abhor the end of year exam that is attached to it It is a high stakes exam without it you just can not graduate from high school in Quebec The course and the exam are supposed to change with the education reforms in Quebec though now that teachers and parents are calling for a moratorium on the reform who knows when that might happen For now students and teachers and parents still need to suffer through the injustice of the course and its exam with the convoluted questions that can drive even the most knowledgeable history student crazy The course has a bad reputation because of the testing Unfortunately this dulls the short though vibrant history of Quebec and Canada for our students http history tracyrosen com Google Tracy Rosen 6 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Sharen on April 11 2008 at 11 26 am Bravo Tracy We applaud your honesty and your practical assistance to all those students teachers and parents who are heading into the final stretch of preparation Only after my daughter failed the June exam and we sat down together to help her get through the August supplemental did I realize how difficult the exam was as an exercise in decoding e g Which of the following are NOT French forts Flummery Are we testing reading or a knowledge of history Okay enough Hyde Park corner In the hope that in the future the study of history can be returned to its vibrancy as a journey of discovery there is a wonderful site available in both English and French based on true Canadian mysteries which leads students through the process of analyzing documents letters diaries journals photographs and maps the historian as detective approach http www mysteryquests ca Well done from your loyal fans Tracy on April 12 2008 at 10 40 am Thanks Sharen And thank you so much for the link to that site If history were taught as an investigative practise as it should be rather than the memorization race it is due to the teach to the high stakes test nature of the present course more students and teachers would be turned on to it I ve added your link to the main history site in the blogroll on the sidebar Since I have a big paper to write I find myself indulging in my procrastination technique of choice making websites So it is looking different from the last time you looked at it I would imagine http history leadingfromtheheart org Sharen on April 16 2008 at 1 55 pm Hi Tracy Yes I really like your new site look How do you get the photos at the top
