pathetic that this is happening in our educational system these days.

Or, at least, that's what the thinking has been for the past few years. I think this shows just how poorly that method is working, BWFDIK?

I like the idea of our kids being able to spell and put a sentence together. The example used of 'write about a haunted house' is one that will also show a students creativity and imagination. I am not sure this (creativity)is being taught well either. It seems they are more interested in creating a curriculum that will enable the students to pass the test of the week. This may be OK, but I would hope they might also teach the idea that there is more than one way out of a paper bag.
