OK here. I just became a 7th Grade Math teacher this fall. I heard other teachers say that for a few years up until last year they were not allowed to make the kids memorize the times tables, because it was "rote learning" which was banned. I have students who can't multiply. Unless I give those kids a times table fact sheet or a calculator, they will be left hopelessly behind this year. But so far my general policy is "no calculators except on designated days to be announced." They will be allowed calculators on the state test, so the new state standard says we have to spend at least a bit of time teaching how to use a basic calculator (4 functions plus square root and percent keys, no more).

Oh, and some of them can't handle cursive writing, either. They learn their letters on the keyboard and they print.

The class I found the most useful in school and for the rest of my life has been typing.
Learned to touch type in grade 11.

My mom taught me to type before taking it in school. Typing 10 tied with Shop Class for my highest mark in school.

And I was not allowed to take typing. Only girls could take it. I had to teach myself from a vinyl record.

I can relate to that. When it was time for me to learn, I couldn't take Drafting or wood shop, I needed to take HomeEc and Library Science.

I still can't cook or sew and the Dewey Decimal system died long ago.

My wife took Latin.
No wonder we have trouble communicating.

Donna,

I had to teach myself typing so that I could take Library Science in college.

I wasn't allowed to take shop class in high school (60s) as I was on the college track; had to take typing. All my buddies took shop, and if you screwed up your project you got to add two grooves and call it an ashtray. Probably not on todays approved list of projects.......

Amusing aside - mother in law taught the same level class in school for 25 years before retiring. Father in law often said she was stuck in the 4th grade for a quarter of a century......
