My grade 10 classes are so different. My morning ones are very weak and chatty - 8 of them failed at least part of their grade 9 review test. My afternoon kids are very bright - lots of marks in the 80's and 90's, and no one really close to failing (I did give them COMPLETELY different tests). I'll have to start making "are you sure your son/daughter is okay in the academic stream" phone calls on Monday. After 3 days of reviewing last year's material, they really should have gotten better marks on an easy test.
Let's hope week 2 is as good!
