Sunday Morning Shout Out

The television show “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth-Grader” is temporarily being replaced by a new show “Could You Get to High School in 1912?”  The Christian Science Monitor website recently featured an article that allowed its readers to take part of a high school entry exam for one Kentucky county in 1912.  Called the “Common Exam”, it was noted as a big deal.  Perhaps it sheds a little light on today’s Common Core Standards.  But as I write this, I am remembering that this was a high school entrance exam.  Some of my fourth grader’s math assignments do not look extremely  different in comparison.  Would you make it to high school in 1912?  In the article, your grade is tabulated as you go.  Let me know your thoughts and if willing your grade!  It will be fun to see who is off to 9th grade.
