I found a new blog this week, via Redgage actually, and as I am a teacher couldn't resist sharing this post. It is from the Oregon Art Guy's blog and is a test from 1895 for eighth grade students. We tend to think of our ancestors as being less educated, particularly as they left school at a younger age than we did. After reading this test I can only assume that they packed an awful lot in to their schooling! Not only would my Year 8 classes fail, but I would too. Here is the Oregon Art Guy Blog.
Let me know how you get on!
