Letters to the Editor...
I have to agree. I teach 4th graders, and
I think we create burnout in a lot of
ways. Each time I look at my district's
critical learnings (objectives, goals,
whatever you want to call them), I ask
myself what we expect of 9 and 10-year
olds. They are supposed to understand core
democratic values and apply them to a state
or local issue...wow! That's a lot for
them. I think the issue goes across the
board in many subjects. And it seems like
more and more keeps coming with less and
less to do things with.
