"Children between the ages of five and thirteen have more appropriate and important areas on which to focus their energies and attention."But not all parents at the school, which includes kindergarten through fifth grade, agreed.
Glenda Hutchinson has a grandchild enrolled at the elementary school.
I was watching the news in Dallas last night, and I saw a segment about a nine year old boy named Alex Greven who wrote a book about dating called "How to Talk to Girls." What initially caught my attention was not that a 9 year old boy is being touted as a dating guru, but how adults are treating him like some prodigy.
The news achors and his teacher were simply amazed at his ability to parrot back sterotypes about heterosexual dating norms.
It won’t take long till it’s a part of the assigned reading in elementary schools.
Since it’s written for kids by kids, it’s given a higher authoritative value.
First of all, where the hell did this statistic come from and futhermore, how many times has this kid told a classmate whether or not she was a "regular girl" or a "pretty girl"?
The activity used is a variation on the popular practice of speed dating.Fantastic course for boys and girls: Learn all the basics about flirting, dating, romancing, bodylanguage, opening lines, small talk, conversation ...then go and conquer that partner you are dreaming of and make her happy!So, objects older than that do not contain enough of the isotope to be dated.Conversely, the method doesn't work on objects that are too young.In other words, this function takes in a number of years, t, as its input value and gives back an output value of the percentage of carbon-14 remaining.So, if you were asked to find out carbon's half-life value (the time it takes to decrease to half of its original size), you'd solve for t number of years when in any remains will have broken down.My name is Mendy Spesard, and I am the new principal of South View Upper Elementary School, which houses all of District No.118’s fifth and sixth grade students.I have been an educator for twenty-one years with experience in grades kindergarten through sixth.I don’t see this kid as being particularly precocious or intuitive just because he can articulate what he observes from watching tween sitcoms on the Disney Channel.The book is chock full of such gems as "About 75% of regular girls ditch boys; 98% of pretty girls ditch boys." WTF?
