    You MUST be joking, right? Plagiarism?

    I don't know about reporting it-if he thinks it will work, then, yes. But, just wanted to offer hugs and understanding about college professor's who have unreachable expectations and who seemingly don't have a clue. That may sound harsh, but I had some who caused me to shake my head.

    what have you noticed about the new forums?

    Pretty sure I did something wrong and I won't even bother worrying the mods about it yet. I couldn't get in with my old screen name. Wonder what my post count will be when I hit submit?

    Ideas for extended family dinners

    King Ranch casserole, corn, black olives, salad Crispy or grilled chicken salad/ Taco salad Pulled pork sandwiches
  6. I teach in an elementary school and we do not use textbooks for math-not sure about science. We use Sharon Wells curriculum for math and it is aligned with the state standards. Any time there is a change in a state requirement, the curriculum will be updated to show that change. In being aligned with the standards, it is naturally geared to helping students be successful on the state test. Teachers are sent to workshops each six week grading period to help them become familiar with the text and receive tips on teaching it. Textbooks become dated so quickly. This way, the material is more up to date. Our math teachers require students to keep a journal which is filled with supplemental material. This can be thought of as the student's textbook in which they are the author and illustrator.

    Feeling anxious about upcoming hysterectomy

    You may find it helpful to sleep in a recliner when you get home. Those hospital beds will spoil you with their range of motion. When you come home and start to lie flat, it may stretch a little. YMMV
