My post is not language related, but computer teaching program related & is something to consider. Kids have computers teaching them at school now via programs like i-Ready. These do not always put kids at their correct level. For example, my kid stayed in lower math areas on i-Ready because he didn't type his answers quick enough. It didn't matter if the answers were correct or not. My daughter is an excellent reader & a similiar teaching program has continued to keep her at a level far below what she really is. A teacher can explain & communicate to kids, they can see where the kid needs help, but just can't cater to each child's certain area of struggle with a classroom full of children struggling in different areas. These computer programs sound like they could really help with this issue. That's what we are hoping these programs will do. But realistically, they could actually be potentially harmful to these kids. A teacher can answer specific questions, see the child's emotions, know they need a break, be aware of what that child is going through, etc. A computer cannot know or help a child's social & emotional well being, which is a crucial part of learning. And with the added stress the child has while doing this computer work, a computer cannot know accurately the academic level the child is at. Computer programs sound like a good plan, but for my 2 kids, these programs have not been helpful. They have caused them to feel unsuccessful and behind, when they realistically are not. Explaining that to them, convincing them that the computer is wrong, that becomes the job, not teaching. Then they are told to go back to the computer and continue. These programs may sound like a great idea, but in reality they are not healthy & can even be harmful to these kids. For this particular computer learning program related situaton, we have to find another way.

Please read my comments regarding the forest fires. Posted on NBC news from this broadcast. Both CA. an OR. have devastating forest fires each year. YET THEY BEHAVE LIKE THIS IS THEIR FIRST RODEO. THEY CHOOSE LIKE THOSE IN HURRICANE AND TORNADO AREAS. I HAVE NO EMPATHY FOR THEM. Because of their selfish, self centered ATTITUDE. They continue to PUT THE LIVES of Forest Fighter's at RISK. Even if they live through fighting the FIRES. THEIR LIVES HAVE damage to lungs as WELL as OTHER ILLNESSES. NOTHING proves this MORE profoundly then 9/11 19 years ago today.

I live north of Portland just 10 miles. The smoke has covered the sky for days and the smell is noxious. The people of California and Oregon were aware that they are in the path of a accumulated fires. I have little sympathy for them. Just like the folks told about hurricanes and tornadoes mostly across the Southern U.S.. THEIR WILFUL IDIOT'S. They had time to gather the item's they think most important. This is NOT THEIR FIRST RODEO. They should ALWAYS HAVE a complete package READY to go. PERIOD.
