So I am somebody who likes to learn, I like knowing things about everything, and so I am used to in school, reading or hearing the teacher say something, processing it, understanding it, and acing it. That's how I learn and how I remember things. The more struggles I make the more I make mistakes, revise them, and remember next time. I use mnemonics when I have trouble remembering. But my school is idiotic, especially my Social Studies class. Yesterday, I started talking to my SS teacher about my assignments and said we should not be able to use are books on all assignments and tests because we don't learn anything. I don't know any of the previous things we have been learning. He tried saying "Well then, don't use the book and answer the questions on your own"... I CAN'T BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING AND YOU ARE A WORTHLESS TEACHER. So I said that I don't know what we have been learning in order to do that. Then he said that that is why you read the book and figure it out. After maybe a minute of this, he didn't understand what I was trying to say, so he brought me to my advanced learning ELP teacher and tried using him to translate. He couldn't understand a 12-year-old saying that the book in an answer sheet that he lets people use on everything, so he brought me to a smarter teacher to translate it. Wow. Then my ELP teacher agreed with my SS teacher. They tried to say that using the book is a skill that I need to learn. I know how to flipping read. They brought up the situation, that if you went to the doctor, and he didn't know something, would it be better to go look at the medical book, or take a shot in the dark? Neither, doctors go to SCHOOL to be doctors where they have to LEARN and MEMORIZE things before they can do anything.
