Every few days, I receive an email from someone who needs me to grade their work.
Every now and then, I receive an email from someone who really wants to learn Latin, Greek, or Italian.
It’s a bit frustrating. Grades overshadow everything. 90% of my students only want their grades. 10% actually want to master Latin, Greek and Italian. It is what it is. It’s what the modern state, the modern government school system has done to us all. I hate it. I fight it. I will continue to fight. Doesn’t seem to matter.
I fight authority. Authority always wins.
I know you guys are stuck. We all are. I am doing what I can to help.
I am working every day this to build tools to help students check their own work. I am creating more quizzes and tests for my site. Just created another one this morning. It is my goal to write a quiz/test every day. Already, there are around 100 quizzes/tests on my site and that number is climbing. My site will generate an automatic grade for students who take the quizzes.
I have also loaded my own answer keys to my site, and I will be loading more. These are free to subscribers. Over the past six, or seven years I have created a massive database of responses to my students. Compiled, these answers total around 1,000 pages. These pages I am uploading to my site for my subscribers. I also have forums where students are able to interact with other students and are able to check each other’s work.
