The Test

 

Is this going to be on the test?

So many kids ask this question.

 

Unfortunately, they have been conditioned to learn that the important stuff is on the test, and the unimportant stuff won’t be tested.

But it begs some larger, more important questions.

What’s worth knowing?
What is worth a student’s time and effort?
What should a student learn regardless of what’s on the test?

 

Let’s try to get kids to stop asking the question.

 

Is this going to be on the test?

No, because it’s certainly not going to be important to you later on.
