Tolerance 101?

If you could create/select a new subject that had to be taught in high school, what would it be, and why?

  • This is a very interesting topic. It's pretty much something that would be both useful and something motivating to students. Why? Because positive results are what motivates someone. I guess maybe some creative art stuff would be ideal. Why? Creativity are where many people thrive, including yours truly.

  • Sims Medieval cheas is a resource site gathering all of the various codes and hints for better game play. Many of the codes here are intentional built in by the game developers so don't feel bad for being a cheater if you use them.

  • Accepting all differences.  What made high school tough for me was that  I did not feel like  I fit in because of my learning disabilities. It was hard to feel like   I fit in with the rest of my peers. I feel in general that people only look on the surface of people with disabiilites and don't look past the differences they have to realize that aside from the challenges they face  physically, emotionally or academically and see that they  are caring and understanding people  on the inside. This can also apply to people who are  gay lesbian bi or transgendered.  I feel that these people are misunderstood because of their sexual orientation  that's why people who are against gay marriage frusturate me.  Love should be universal regardless of sexual orientation.
  • Not Watching A Movie and/or Goofing Off, but Really Studying Something Educational. Seriously, 20-30% of my experiences in highschool involved classes that were basically social hours and movie watching sessions.

  • anus loving 101

  • Probably creative thinking. The class would be hard to create, probably because it would be easy to bullshit, but those that actually enjoyed the class would be able to expand their ability to think freely and constructively.

  • No, as a matter of fact, I would probably prefer to see the schools lose some of the fluff courses (Independent living?  What the heck is that?) and focus more on the basics:  Math, English (not Literature, actual English*) Science, History & Social Science.

    Today's students do not know as much about English and History as I did when I graduated in 83, and I knew less than my grandmother when never got past the 8th grade.

    What does that tell us about the state of education?

    *I know of at least 3 recent HS grads who have no concept of how to diagram a sentence.  English grammar was not required after grade 8 or 9.

  • Aviation, or at least the mechanics of aviation. It would entail:
    -The physics of flight
    -The mechanics of flying a plane
    -Different plane types
    -A small amount of history

    Piloting is a popular and desirable career. Even if so many airlines fold, there's still going to be a need for pilots, so why should people have to wait until college and beyond to begin their career. Obviously, this class wouldn't appeal or be applicable to everyone, so it would be more of an exploratory or an elective than a required class.

  • Yeah, I would have to go with Tolerence too. I am so sick of people judging  others and just being horrible to other people beacause they are different or don't believe the same thing.
