    What is or was your favorite class while in school? Why?

    My favorite class would have to be Geography. When I was in 6th grade I won our school wide Geography Bee, and have loved the subject ever since. Now after years of college classes I have finally graduated with a major in Geography, earning an award for highest G.P.A. for my major!

    Please share!

    O something else I would like to know as an educator, and a Geography lover. Did you like your Geography classes growing up? I'm going to use your responses for something I am working on, Thanks!!!

    I loved Ceramics because I made major SEKSI pots and all these random things and get to cherish them forever. I basically kick diarrhea in Ceramics

    and Arabic because it's one of the coolest languages in the world and learned so much from it and I LOVE the writing. SEKSI!

    Geography class was actually fun, I guess because I'm obsessed with different cultures and loved learning the names and where all the countries were and stuff..

    I was really into genetics in high school. So I guess biology. But I also liked History and English. And other things...

    Really, the only subjects I didn't like were math and P.E. icon_razz.gif

    I loved the civics classes, Government, and the like. I had pretty good teachers, and with the exception of math, they made the most of my classes fun. College was a different story . . .

    That would be English! i used to love reading my English texts and would even read those of my bro's
    who was six years older. icon_biggrin.gif guess i really loved reading.

    @Geography: I have never had a major grouse with the way geography was taught. My only complaint has been that at times they put in too many facts without giving a proper perspective.

    For instance, one can often see statements like "Country A has 1239373 miles of coastline and spans 340534865 square miles ,sharing its borders with Countries B, C, D in the east, X and Y in the northwest and south respectively. Its population desnsity is ........... "[death by facts]

    It would perhaps be better if they could, in the previous example, say how the long coastline has an impact on the major occupations of the area and how the landmass is affected by the geographical features of the neighbouring country. (eg. a mountain range in country D would be likely to affect the climate of A, and so on)

    Just a thought.Hope it will be useful.

    Regards.

    Gym class and creative writing. Anything science-related or math-related bored me senseless, but I managed to get through it.

    Geography ROCKS!!!! But I didn't major in it.

    So, I guess History and Government would have to be at the top of my list. Which is why I pursued that course in college and graduate school.

    I'm a huge dork because I enjoyed most of my classes in high school. However, my favorite class was Chemistry; For a public school, our curricula was unique because we were given a rubric ... Do this much work at this level and get an A, yada yada yada. I finished the list in 3 months and spent the rest of the year learning Organic in individual tutoring sessions from our teacher. Definitely fueled my love for Chemistry!
