said by pinot noir6:I totally agree with you here except for the chalk board issue. Chalk boards are very poor writing surfaces for the frequency that they are used. White boards on the other hand are the way to go since they are very easy to clean and offer a nice contrast for easy reading. Did I mention that white board markers NEVER make that high pitched screech?
Maybe this is for the better...I have recently read that statistics are showing that students are getting better test scores by learning the old fashioned way, by using chalk boards, paper, and books.
