Welcome back to another edition of Throwback Thursday. I want to take a minute to give you an update on Lauren. Her surgery went as expected and she asked me to express her appreciation for your thoughts and prayers. She needs a lot of rest and healing now. Please keep your good thoughts coming and continue your prayers for her recovery.
This week’s prompt is: Class Assignments
We have talked about report cards and homework and other school related activities. Today I want to focus on specific assignments and what you remember about them.
I obviously do not know much about schools and assignments in other countries. If these questions do not apply, just free write on a subject related to the topic.
Sharpen your #2 pencils and let’s get started.
1. What do you remember as the most interesting required reading assignment you had? What class was it for?
2. Were you required to write a book report or were you required to give an oral presentation? What do you remember about it?
3. What did you consider the worst book or article you were required to read? What made it the worst?
4. Were you ever required to debate other classmates? If so, what class was it for? Do you remember any of the subjects and your ‘side’ of the debate?
5. Were you ever required to do a science project or enter school science fair? What was your project? Did you do it alone or did your parents help you? If you were graded, how did you do?
6. Did you have a Home Economics class or a Wood/Metal Shop class? What types of things did you make?
7. Did you frequent the library? Was it for class work or for pleasure? What book that you read for pleasure had the most impact on you?
8. What was your most creative class? Band? Chorus? Art? Drama? Writing? What standout creative project do you remember most?
9. Were you Required to write a term paper or an end of year report in any of your classes? Did you remember what you wrote about?
10. Bonus Question: Did your teachers ever offer extra credit assignments ? Did you do them to help improve your grade?
I will be back on Thursday with my responses.
