Back to school teachers' meeting
- All of our classes have to make two oral presentations per year, same as last year, but this year they'll be required to use an overhead projector or Power Point (per Bossman). I asked him if a beamer (for the Power Point presentations) had been ordered, and he assured me that one was on it's way. I then asked him about a laptop, and he looked puzzled. I followed that question up by asking him how on earth students were supposed to do Power Point presentations with a beamer and no laptop, and he said, 'Good point, I'll order a laptop soon.'
- 'Dictations will be given during correspondence classes this year. The correspondence teacher has to give all dictations, but the grade will be counted as a grammar grade, not correspondence.'
- There is no standard or fixed grading scheme. The only thing that is important is that teachers give the office the grading scheme according to which they want to grade an exam in advance.
