The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

Common Core Crap

Here is a sample question from the new national tests that states are diverting billions of dollars to- what an utter waste of time. Does answering this really prove anything? This would be a great college level assignment for a literature major. By the way, if you have no idea what “transforms” means, you are done. This is a question designed to fool kids and trick them.

“Use what you have learned from reading ““Daedalus and Icarus”” by Ovid and “”To a Friend Whose Work Has Come to Triumph”” by Anne Sexton to write an essay that provides an analysis of how Sexton transforms “Daedalus and Icarus.””
